David Fuller is trapped in a life of deadening sameness. His only solace is the world he dives into when he reads a book. Friendless, isolated - he is disconnected from the world in a way that not even his own deepest secrets are known to himself. Laura Matthews, a successful businesswoman, sees David reading at lunchtime outside her office window every day. Curiously drawn to him, she one day walks up to him and introduces herself. They quickly discover that they have a shared past. This is not the happy reunion of childhood friends but rather the reopening of old wounds that never healed and left them with lasting consequences. Empty Fuller is a story of the past. It is the story of how one small misunderstanding, one single moment in time, can have heartbreaking consequences. And how those moments can grow, and fester, in the fertile soil of an adolescent mind, until the only possible result is an explosion of rage, bitterness, and violence. Kirsten Øhrn Dyrud's haunting score ... Written by Anonymous

Only So-so
9 October 2010 | by pilarfueraSee all my reviews

my personal opinion is that this film kind of dragged on. The story was just not that interesting or ground-breaking. I felt like I'd seen stories like this before. Here were the things I liked: 1.) At times the slowness of the film made it feel like a dream which was interesting 2.) Some of the acting was pretty good. 3.) The cinematography was good quality, something I've grown to believe is rare with indie films.

Here are the things I didn't like (sorry): 1.) The story didn't always seem clear... it felt like a lot of talking to explain what was going on. 2.) The actor who played the lead was not always believable as a person with disturbing psychological issues... at times I felt his acting got in the way of the story. 3.) The movie felt long... its no longer than a normal movie, but it felt long which means I was anxious for it to be over.

I give this film a 7 because it is an indie film and there are obvious limitations when making a film with little money. I give the film makers credit for that.
