One of the best films I've seen in a while
27 April 2013 | by nummy3See all my reviews

"Gerald" is one of those rare films that actually gives the viewer credit for having some intelligence, which is a refreshing change. The film is well written, well acted, and overall one of the best films I've seen in a long time. Louis Mandylor does an excellent job playing the naive but not stupid main character. It would have been easy for him to play Gerald as an over-the-top character who bumbles about from one scene to the next, but he deftly handles the role. Of course, much of the credit for this has to go to the script, which is funny when it needs to be funny, serious when that emotion is needed, and intriguing when that's called for. The script also paints Gerald as a fun, interesting character who viewers can't help but pull for. Do yourself a favor and see this film.
