Storyline

A highly symbolic look at alcoholism as told through the eyes of Bob, an alcoholic who is having nightmares about being murdered by a mysterious figure. Terrified and alone, Bob embarks on a journey to defeat this shadowy demon whose dark presence comes to represent the disease that shackles him. The way Bob seeks to destroy Filo is a powerful look at how addiction can grip an individual, as well as being a strong reminder to those of us who have been face to face with addiction ourselves. Written by Filo

All Journeys are Epic
16 April 2011 | by gflong2005See all my reviews

One of those movies you want to watch with a remote in hand. Fantastic sense of surreal realism. The store shots are authentic rather than pretentious. Genre bending film. Always good for a second watch. The footage is raw art, and lacks pretentious bullshit. I would try it a third viewing with the sound off, joint in hand...stereo on...its a trip. There are depressing shots and you can "feel" the paint of the walls. Filo (FILO?) seems to be ironic in the title: does the Director intend to say First In Last Out as an ironic description of the alcoholic process? There is a claustrophobic feel to this film, claustrophobic, incredibly urban by implication and economy. A film that is perhaps best appreciated on a second viewing.
