Addison, a struggling screenwriter, is polishing the script for "Kosmos," the latest blockbuster from director Norton Kavanagh. Confined in a hotel just days before the shoot, Addison finds himself torn between his conflicts with Norton and his inability to love girlfriend and actress, Holly Bedeau. Meanwhile, across the hall, Scarlett and Dean celebrate the holiday together as they prepare for the last promotional tour of Dean's autobiographical novel, "Years of Perpetual Motion." When Dean opts to spend his evening with a few friends, Scarlett is left contemplating the love they once shared and the fear that it will never return.Written by
The cinematography in this film was fascinating. It was presented in two frames with two story lines happening simultaneously through one continuous shot. Brilliant! I enjoyed how the filmmakers played with the idea of action; while one frame's action was in the dialogue, the other frame's action was in movement, like one character shining his shoes, or someone walking through a hallway. I did enjoy the theatrical aspect of his shots and of the acting. It seemed to me like I was watching a play take place on film in two frames. It was visually beautiful and I would assume technically difficult. However, I do think the film was too long. The concept was brilliant but the film in its entirety needs editing. Many scenes went on for too long, as if the filmmakers were a little too self indulgent and forgot to consider their audience. Also, one of the story lines was difficult to follow because the sound quality was poor in the beginning. I was impressed with the cast. However, I do wish that Holly's character was developed a little more. I think more of a storyline with her and the screenwriter was needed. All in all, I was impressed with this film as an incredible first draft. It is worth experiencing. I do look forward to what these guy dream up next!
