Review this movie
May 10, 2012Why does a movie have an "indie feel'? maybe that means it is a boring, uninteresting movie. Which this is. The first 30 minutes or so nothing happens. There are long shots of people sitting in a restaurant, eating dinner, standing on a bridge, walking, little or no dialogue. Nothing happens. Little background on the characters. Someone pops in , pops out, no rhyme, no reason, no interest. Then a mystery starts, I guess. A woman is missing. Well, she is not in her room, the guys rent a room, the phone rings, he doesn't answer, the other guy barges in, they drive, a postcard, the pencil and pad trick, on and on, boring, slow, dull!!!! Had to stop watching. Couldn't waste any more tine. A complete failure. Maybe an "indie feel" is when the filmmaker tries to make it look like real life. Then boundless praise is heaped on him for a "real, gritty film"; it makes all the film festivals, it's a winner. Why?… Expand
May 28, 2013Very easy, read "RobinsNest"'s review. At least he/she has the sense to stop watching. If the ultimate point of sitting down to watch a movie/film is to be entertained, this one falls quite a bit short. Still can't believe the DVD cover has a (professional?) critic quoted as saying something to the effect of "I don't believe a better American film will be made this year." Ummm, what?!
