I though that this film was completely unique, both in the way it was shot with an IPad 2 and the storyline as well. Aaron Mento took a leap and did what most people with an IPad haven't done before. A feature length movie on such a small device is something that is creative and innovative. You really do feel for the characters and they are all written very well. I highly recommend this movie, especially if you want to think outside of the box and break away from gore for a little bit. The movie reminded me of "Memento" and it plays with the senses. Mento has you going from one feeling to another in a flawless and effective manner.
I really enjoy movies that have you think, instead of a villain chasing someone through the woods with a machete. I enjoy a great slasher movie every now and then, however, a movie like "Standards of Living" certainly goes of the grid. What I enjoyed most about this movie was it's deeper meaning of freedom, equality, and peace. The clothes changed with how someone was feeling. It's more than just a horror movie, it's a conversation starter and daring.
