Recent preview screening...8/10
1 February 2010 | by nickthegoatSee all my reviews

I saw "I Am the Bluebird" at a recent private screening in LA and was thoroughly impressed with this film. There were about forty people or so, and the director was there for a Q&A afterwards. I was told that the version we saw was a new, shorter cut than the cut that screened previously, so I can't comment on what was different. I can say that the film I saw moved at a pretty brisk pace for most of its 90 minute running time. It was slow in the beginning, but that didn't bother me so much, as it felt intentional, and at times I felt the film deliberately put me in the shoes of its main character, Ethan, who is recovering from amnesia (or similar condition). He is often frustrated, and in the dark, and at times so are we as the audience. I enjoyed the journey, and it paid off nicely in the end for an emotionally satisfying ending. Well done to those involved.

Technically, I thought the cinematography and music were both great, and added immensely to the tone and emotion throughout the film. The soundtrack reminded me a little of "Garden State", which is a good thing considering that boosted that film's success, though this film's soundtrack seemed much more on the indie side.

One thing that I really did enjoy about this film that most movies (at least that I've seen) don't dive into much is medical malpractice. This film points a lot of in that direction, and I was really interested in the outcome of Ethan's discovery. Without giving anything anyway, I will say it was ultimately convincing, though a bit on the sci-fi side, but I bought it. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to watch a low-budget indie movie that forces you to think a little.
