Deeper than you think
5 April 2008 | by FrancoisGSee all my reviews

I saw this movie at a friend's house and we were both really surprised. What seems like a regular stoner flick is a carefully crafted commentary on society, drugs and race. The characters are such perfect stereotypes and the scenes so dense, the plot being secondary to the feeling of place and moment. It really reminded me of early John Carpenter in a way. The film builds to a climactic scene with a trippy commentary beforehand by a mystical character disguised as a black Egyptian weed buyer. The camera work was amazing and the colors, soundtrack and locations made me miss New York more than ever. Yes, this is a very low budget film but I think with more resources these filmmakers could really bring us something special that a mainstream audience would appreciate. And the guy who plays Indo is a revelation to watch. Give it a chance, you will not be disappointed.
