Storyline

'Alan Smithee' is a film about a boy growing up. It delves into the darker side of what 'growing up' sometimes means: growing into your flaws, inevitably being met with the errors of your parents, and the necessity to make room for the pain. While Alan is surrounded by what is thought to be the American ideal, all the material comforts that should equate happiness, he learns that sometimes all we are is lost in the woods.

The writer/director should be in the pedophile ward of prison
20 April 2019 | by hddu10-819-37458See all my reviews

There are unfortunately too many films out there which exploit children in the name of "art". This is definitely one of them. The narcissistic writer/director of course has no clue about the damage he might be causing on these young actors...because hey, it's "art". As mentioned in the title, the writer/director SHOULD be sent to the pedophile ward of whatever state he is living in to save us all the trouble and future expense.
