Good Lead Performance But That's About It
17 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

Dv (2013)

* (out of 4)

Evan Jacobs wrote, directs and plays the lead in this film, which was originally planned as a three hour movie but it was then cut down into three different films. This first film has Jacobs playing a serial killer who goes around with a camera recording himself so that he can learn from what he's doing.

DV clocks in at just over a hour and it's pretty hard to sit through. I will say that I thought Jacobs was a fine actor and his good performance is the only thing that kept the film from becoming a complete disaster. I also respect what he was going for but sadly it just doesn't work. This is meant to get inside the mind of a serial killer but the film just never does that and there's certainly no psychological suspense to be had here. I also thought the camera-work was quite ugly and there are a few times where the screen goes to black and this here wasn't the greatest idea.

I am interested to see what other films Jacobs has in him. Even though I really didn't like this movie there was still enough in it to make me seek out the sequels as well as the director's other films.
