With the impressive "Between Something & Nothing," Todd Verow (Vacationland, Bulldog in the Whitehouse) once again revisits his own past, recounting the life of a freshman art school student whose relationship with a mysterious hustler leads him to work the streets himself. Joe arrives at the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design and immediately befriends like-minded Jennifer. Together they tackle seemingly endless and outlandish art assignments while also exploring the music and drugs of the local scene. Alone, however, the outwardly innocent Joe secretly pursues local hustler Ramon, finding liberation and inspiration for his artwork while exploring his darker side. It seems that nothing better than hot sex and working the streets for money brings out the true artist in Joe.Written by
I rarely write reviews but had to add my 2 cents. This movie lacks character development. There is so much going on but it's hard to sympathize or empathize because you don't get an idea of who the characters are. It's hard to relate. Just seem to be dropped in situations and it's like "How'd they get there? Who are they? What are they doing? What's the point?" Even the interaction between the characters is hard to follow. The acting was OK considering it wasn't a major production so I'm sure direction was lacking. Would I watch this again or recommend it...probably not. Although I have seen far worse in my day for sure. For the 1 hour 45 minutes it lasted I'm sure a lot more could've been done.
