When was the last time an independent movie garnished so much attention and controversy? Apparently, "The Last Mango" has been raising up a storm of emotionally challenging reviews which question the Director's true intent. John Calvin Doyle, wrote and directed "Fishing with Tink and Earl" and "The Falsetoes" as improbable as could be, both movies shine with a comedic brilliance, in an extraordinarily low budget tone. Doyle has brought a new face to the indy genre of the Baltimore/DC metropolitan area, a face that includes his latest project, "The Last Mango" which experiments with the darkly humorous, grotesque side of happy hour, drugs and betrayal, darkly lit back alleys and lots of old muscle cars. John Calvin Doyle has faced an exceptionally challenging audience with a bold and adventurous tale that is not a happy walk through the park. In his editing devices, Doyle has experimented with lighting, sound and surrealism in his shooting techniques. He has broken ground to the concept of independent film and should be credited to his artistic achievement with designing some of the greatest character actors to grace an independent film.
