A sweet, fun movie and an impressive low budget accomplishment
Don't Know Yet was made as a sort of micro-budget experiment, with a film department faculty member directing a crew made up of entirely of undergraduate and recently graduated students. The skeleton crew shot the movie on a short summer schedule, often camping to save time and money. The movie is beautifully shot by a talented young cinematographer (Joe Ensley) and brilliantly edited by Nate Daniel, who made the most of a footage shot rapidly at an extremely low ratio, with many improvised moments. Terry Linehan's script is unconventional and may be challenging to viewers accustomed to linear narrative and obvious exposition. But his playful and sincere approach to the material pays off, especially in scenes featuring a colorful cast of supporting players who the protagonist encounters on his journey to self re-discovery. Scenes with Cullen Moss and Shane Callahan stand out, as does a memorable cameo from David Andrews (World War Z, Fight Club, Fair Game). The wide range of beautiful (and whimsical) North Carolina locations featured throughout the story add to the film's charm. For those willing to explore outside the expectations of big budget Hollywood cinema, "Don't Know Yet" offers an amiable, heartfelt, and genuinely entertaining movie experience.
