Quotes

Christopher: It is not really what you do, it's more the intensity by what you do it. By the conviction of the reality you believe in, you make others believe it. You can not make it up, really. And then people get convinced, even yourself gets convinced, whatever that is. It is not a hidden track that is there waiting for you. You got to step into it, whatever that is. That is like painting, you do all the things that are not right but they all contribute to the thing that will be right in the end. It's ...

Need more, don't be afraid to make a film
24 October 2014 | by michael-c-huntSee all my reviews

Lots of good reviews already here, all with good points.

I wanted more, more development, more info, and wondered if the film was overly autobiographical on Joanna's part. Film, for me, is interesting in that it can reflect life, but that only communicates it to others. Really interesting film explores potentials, unknowns, has a resolution, yes. This is not just good storytelling, nor it is audience fetishism - it is respecting the ability of film to be creatively ergonomic, simply put. We watch films to associate, to belong, we do need some feeding, nothing wrong in that. Portraying sadness and dysfunction isn't enough as I see it in film. The medium deserves us to go further. Make a damned story out of it, the reality behind the story will still be there when we think about it. I wasn't sure Cynthia was really acting, which is nothing to shout about, and it's ironic, the best acting I thought was from Christopher, who isn't an actor. Come on, do film making some justice, work it, don't be afraid of it. But I did enjoy it. And it provoked a lot of comments. I am sure if it was that poor, the bad reviewers wouldn't have watched it all. So watch it. It's a positive thing. Liked it.
