User Reviews

indie lacking
17 July 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Perry Roberts (Michael Welch) goes on a rant on the internet about his privilege. Dr. Reeves (Jeremy London) is his therapist and Patricia (Patricia Richardson) is his mother. He's the son of a corrupt politician. Giovanni (Shaun Sipos) is a drug dealing art student with a gun, one bullet, and a ritual. Freshman Molly (Sarah Foret) is obsessed with Giovanni. The two guys see each other as polar opposites and start a disturbed friendship over the ritual.

Neither guy is appealing. Perry is a problematic lead character. His fixation on the American dream comes off as teen angst. He has no basis. It needs to be more specific about his anger towards his parents. It needs scenes of them together at the beginning. Shaun Sipos lacks intensity portraying Giovanni. The whole movie lacks tension. This is an indie with a couple of half-cooked ideas.
