The story is minimal; love lost, love regained, love destroyed. Our characters are Caleb and Rin. Caleb lives comfortably in his upper/middle class lifestyle as a columnist and blogger. Rin is a prominent student filmmaker in the gay community at his college. Their lives intertwine when Caleb's wife is killed in an accidental hit and run, and Caleb's only memory of the accident is a bumper sticker of a one legged bird. The two develop a relationship that opens up Caleb's world to a new meaning of love, but transcends into dangerous and destructive when he begins to suspect Rin had something to do with his accident. The film is told in four intertwining storylines, shot in four different film styles respectively; Melodrama, French New Wave, Mumblecore (or 'Indie'), and Documentary which will actually feature real interviews from notable members of Minnesota's GLBT community. FAUX takes place during America's current perceptions of sexuality; specifically, the gay rights movement. It ... Written by Rogue Cinema

I felt like this went over my head, but at the same time, that's why I liked it so much...it made me think a lot about movies and human rights and how things are related...how we are all related, in fact.

The movie is a cluster of stories (the synopsis here says 4 but I'd say there were more) that flow together kind of like Crash. The main plot driving everything is about a man who loses his wife in a car accident, and then takes up with a filmmaker (also a guy) and explores his sexuality. But that seems to get tossed to the background after 15 minutes, and suddenly we are bombarded by so many ideas and philosophies and subtle discussions, all the while still feeling for the characters and hoping things will work out somehow. This must have taken years to write, the whole film is just dialogue, but it's exciting to listen to! The other plot lines are three students talking about movies and culture, a creepy old guy obsessing over the young filmmaker, a couple at an art museum listening to rich people's idiotic statements, two people talking to the camera (unscripted?) and there felt like a couple more little ones, but these were the big plots.

You could tell it was really low budget, but I actually didn't mind. I've seen bigger budget movies that look even cheaper than this, and who needs budget when there's so much going on in the dialogue.

I really enjoyed this just because I'm still thinking about it, and I saw it over a week ago! My girlfriend and I have been trying to figure out the ending too, we have different opinions, but I won't write them so I don't spoil anything! Overall, awesome independent movie that was both smart and caring.
