Creative but painful. Better done in 10 minutes
24 January 2013 | by elowsmaSee all my reviews

I will admit I fell asleep in this one. Scenes carried on too long and they never gave any direction to what was happening. No foreshadowing or building of a plot. In short, you can see some type of creative attempt; however, it was done at the expensive of the film watcher. Not enjoyable unless you're a film student trying to act like your into an edgy film maker.

I imagine the lead actor could possibly be a good actor but this role did not require much effort. Little dialogue and a singular facial expression; straight with a feeling of gloom.

(Gave it a two b/c the makeup artist did a pretty good job)
