Beautiful film about grief and mourning
20 March 2019 | by drmidnite1See all my reviews

My wife and I saw "Starfish" at the Nitehawk in Williamsburg, Brooklyn last week with the director in attendance for a q&a session after the film. He will be roadshowing it himself over the next few months across the U.S. Highly recommend you see it and listen to him share his stories about the film if you get a chance. The director wrote, edited and scored the film with a friend so he has lots of low budget filmmaking tales about the movie.

The film is a genre piece that is a mediation on loss, loneliness and regret that is hauntingly beautiful. Though slow at times, the score and cinematography are amazing and the special effects are beyond compare for such a low budget film. The lead actress is in every scene and she really sells the hope, depression and shell shock that embody her character at different points in the movie. Her performance, and that of the turtle, are make or break for the film and she never feels less that real no matter how fantastical things become. The turtle is pretty awesome too.

This is isn't a film that will answer all your questions or give you nightmares, but if you are looking for a genre film that tells a story in a different way and engenders a conversation afterwards then this it. Truly a surprise and a breath of fresh air from start to finish.
