Rip-Off
24 July 2006 | by TomDugan2See all my reviews

This film would be acceptable as an "extra" you might find on a real Hollywood DVD but never as a 60 minute, stand-alone film in general distribution. It does come with ballpark history and a nice combination of pan and scanned artwork for its countless voice-overs and some reasonable reenactments for Joan fans. For that I would give it a three.

What brings that to a one for me is using coy packaging to make the product seem like something it is not even in the ballpark with. Just think - this quickie production is probably in the under $50 thousand range, yet you get to pay the same for it as for Hollywood's latest $50 million epic when you rent it or (God forbid) buy it. This is not to put down indie or foreign filmmakers who put blood and soul into their work, or even some of the better television releases, but rather to remind us all that a fool and his money are soon parted.
