Decent Little Indie
13 December 2015 | by info-7081See all my reviews

I wanted to like this movie so I stuck with it. I'm glad I did. I have an appreciation for ultra low budget movies that spring forth from a passion for filmmaking rather than an urge to create a vehicle designed to generate money and fame. There are hundreds of little movies that never get seen because the filmmakers try to emulate a formula that works well for huge budget Hollywood motion pictures but not for movies produced with tiny budgets. In the case of Two Step the effort is right on the money so to speak. It's a movie about regular people dealing with difficult circumstances.

Two Step largely suffers from regional filmmaking disorder. Audiences can't put their finger on it but they know that it's out of sync with what they're used to watching. In spite of all the terrific elements that make up this movie, something doesn't quite click. The script is serviceable. The performances are competent and sincere. The lighting, camera work and production design are seamless add gravity to every scene. The direction is low-key to a fault. I enjoy the languid pace and slow burn approach but contemporary audiences generally don't. I wish the characters would've moved around a bit during conversational scenes but the director chose the default position of putting his actors in a sit- down to do the talking.

Skye Moore is endearing as the kid in jeopardy unfortunately he's nothing more than a prop for a big chunk of the movie. James Landry Hébert is fairly convincing as the villain. His initial motivations are clear and his brutal behavior is obviously born out of desperation. But his descent into total depravity and the horrible acts he commits are not compatible with the character of the petty thief that we meet at the beginning of the movie. The narrative just doesn't bear it out. If he suffers from the dementia of a tortured, maniacal inner life, there's absolutely no hint of it on screen.

All of this criticism doesn't offer the impression of any kind of recommendation. However, there are good things about this movie. If you understand the limitations regional, indie filmmaking and you want to see a movie with no pretension, that has a good look, clean audio, good performances and an intermittently compelling story, give it a try.
