"Streamline" proves indie films can be meaningful too
Director Dan Marcus shows us that he's ready for the "big leagues" with his newest short film, Streamline. The film has beautiful cinematography, musical score, is even edited smoothly. But sadly where the film falls a little short is in the visual effects and acting. For an independent film, it seems to have been rushed out of production a little prematurely. Why? I can not say. Some CGI near the end of the film seems to pop out a little too much, removing the audience from what is really a masterful story with deep emotional meaning. And the acting, most notably from the lead actor Joel Reitsma seems almost inexplicably contemptuous. Cheryl Graeff's performance as Dr. Gettler is the standout hit of the film. All in all, Streamline is a really great film. It just could have been a little better, visually.
