One Act Would've Cut It
8 April 2018 | by moviebuffchickSee all my reviews

This movie got off to a REALLY strong start... then it kinda fizzled into a bunch of events that "just happened" with no real cohesiveness.

Pros: Very strong protagonist. Great lead actress (Marsha Timothy)

Cons: Disappointing supportive characters. Didn't quite flow right... after the first act, everything else was really choppy.

This would've made for a GREAT short film (the first act). I understand where they were going with the last 3 acts... but it was just too all over the place and a lot of it just didn't make a whole lot of sense. Definitely could've been better.
