Painless was ABSOLUTELY FLAWLESS! Amazing Film!
24 September 2018 | by tom-41127See all my reviews

The story was incredible. Such a rare, unique, almost unheard of topic. Kudos to Jordan Horowitz as a writer, director, and producer for broaching and bringing to life such an idea.

The script was amazing. It did not skip a beat at all. The story flow was rich, authentic, and perfectly timed at every stage of its unfolding.

The casting was impeccable. The actor's performances were wonderful and the interplay between each was great. It's particularly notable as I assume the actors have no experience with this subject matter and they emotionally connected to the story and each other in the most honest of ways.

The production was stunning. Absolutely beautiful! I was shocked to hear that this movie was produced - studio/cinematic quality - on such a conservative budget and tight schedule. This includes the creative DP decisions made , the graphics, and music.
