Thought provoking, slightly troubling and 'Lynchian' in design.
I was invited along to a preview screening of "Screaming Blue Murder" in London by a friend in the Film industry who has access to these kind of events. Which I hope explains my reviewing a film that, at present, has no distributor.
Firstly, I think that this is the kind of film that would appeal to film-students and perhaps hardened fans of the avant-Gard works of filmmakers like David Lynch, Lars Von Trier and co. It is not an 'easy watch' as they say, but I did find it satisfying in its construction and curious use of multiple aspect ratio composition and, in that respect, it does carry the feel of an Art film.
The lead actor does work very hard to hold together the fragmented story as it jumps along in sometimes bewildering forward cuts and he is very funny to watch.
Overall, I enjoyed "Screaming Blue Murder" and, should it appear on Television, I would definitely spend the time to watch it again to try to better understand its story although I fear, that at my age, there are probably some technical concepts and trickery that maybe lost on me.
