I got a chance to catch The Unseen at the Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles. The movie was great and really intriguing.

Gale Harold played a tortured character. He does it perfectly, as usual. His portrayal of Harold was eye catching, and he basically made you hate his character, just like it should be. His treatment of Sammy just made you want to slap him in the face when he yelled at Sammy and beat him all the time. He really got into the character.

Steve Harris was fantastic as Roy. You could really feel what was happening to him. You pretty much felt sorry for him that all the drama of the film got thrown at him, but at the same time, it helped him to clear up a lot of the demons in his life.

Phillip Bloch, who played Sammy, was probably the most amazing actor in the movie. He brought out Sammy's innocence and was almost like a comic relief in some parts. When you watched him, you believed that he was this blind, naive man who has been tortured by his brother all his life. We actually met him after the screening, and he's such a nice guy. I told him he did a terrific job and he thanked me.

Michelle Clunie was good, but not great in the movie. I think she got off to a slow start do to how she interpreted the character's movements. She seemed flimsy and fake throughout the introductions of the character, and I don't think it was because of the writing. But later, when her character had more emotion--more than being this ditz--she pulled it off. She was into it and she redeemed herself.

Lisa France, wrote, produced, and directed this great movie. The movie was shot exactly where the movie was set, the story was intriguing to see--and not see, if you were following the point of the movie--and the characters were based on real people she had met. I also met her after the movie, and I told her I had been waiting to see the movie for such a long time. Although I had been intrigued with it before, I was glad to see that it went way past my expectations just from the trailer that I had caught on the website.
