Great Drama with some humor and tears
18 July 2015 | by usamazafar-11164See all my reviews

Anger, love, consternation, hope, dreams, and a reflective look inside the creative tormented mind. Samuel Bleak is full of great acting and a thoughtful storyline, not only did the film hold my interest, I was thinking about it after the credits crawl. Auspicious, daring, bold, and inventive, while wearing three hats: writer, director, and star Dustin Dugas Schuetter brings an amazing effort to the screen, and enlists some experienced and ultra-talented actors in Unger, Russo, along with newcomer Christine Kelly as Kat, (whom Bleak befriends in the mental institution). Kelly brings an almost childlike innocence to her suicidal character, refreshing to watch and poignant.

This is the first film in awhile that caught me FLAT FOOTED when the TRUTH came out. The ending had to be what it was but I wanted to know what happened to the three lead characters. They each had their own story and I wanted to know if they found happiness. Watch it, buy it, or at least rent it. The tears and humor is short but the feelings are deep.

All In ALL Great film with sensitive story, performances and presentation. Looking forward to more from this talented young team in the future.
