A disturbing, powerful, Lynchian tragedy
16 February 2011 | by NIN7688See all my reviews

Film: Johnny Be Gone (2010) by Trevor Juenger.

Writing a review for a short film such as Johnny Be Gone is a bit of a challenge. It is the type of short that really has to be seen to be understood. I'll try to keep this as spoiler-free as possible.

The film starts with an intense opening sequence right out of the gate. It brought to mind the opening sequence of "Antichrist." Soft, acoustic music and intense imagery. This is a technique Mr. Juenger implements a lot in this film - quiet moments followed by extreme or disturbing images. This directing style works very well for the film, particularly given the intensity of the more David Lynch-esque moments in the bathroom scenes.

What type of film is this? It sure isn't a party film or a date movie. It ain't pretty, fluffy, or cheerful. It's dark, disturbing, and even mildly depressing. The film's strongest point IS this grim mood, and it works really well. With obvious budget constraints in mind - the writing & directing are very effective, the acting is strong, and the cinematography is gritty, grimy, and powerful.

I recommend it for people who can stomach a film that has a very dark and downer outlook, are not swayed by violence or sexuality, and who can appreciate an underground art film.
