Of 1200+ movies I've seen in my life, this joins a handful of the unwatchable
About 20 minutes was all I could take. Name a technique of good film-making that underlies sound story structure, dialog or characterization, and this film seemed oblivious to nearly all of it.
I'm the kind of film lover who seeks out the unusual, the unknown independent, the challenging. I've seen enough movies to know to hold on for a little bit if the first 10-20 minutes is struggling to break into something of interest. But not this film. So clumsy and tone-deaf was the writing (the actors did an heroic job with the limited material), it defies comprehension how such a film could get any funding whatsoever.
I hate having to write reviews like this since I know how hard it is to put any feature length film together. I'm loathe to rain on another's dreams. But, for hell's sake, this is the kind of drivel that--I'll forgive myself for saying this one time--makes me yearn for the next Hollywood flick.
