  • Summary: With too much money and time on his hands, Zach looks like he's living the dream. There's a steady stream of beautiful women and the party never ends. He meets a girl he calls Crazy Eyes, and she's unlike anyone he's ever met before. She's the one woman Zach can't have, so naturally he wants her. While Zach's hard-partying lifestyle threatens to go off the rails, family concerns begin to play a major role in Zach's life. Will the quest for love and the responsibilities of family life help this poor little rich boy become a man? (Strand Releasing) Expand

    These two non-lovers have real chemistry, and it's hard not to be intoxicated by the strange cocktail of watching them together, even as the story appears to be going nowhere.

    Those willing to indulge regardless will find a surprisingly satisfying character study, woozily shot and elliptically cut to mimic booze-filled blackouts.

    The resulting film has the integrity and the ugliness of the truth. It's not true because it's ugly; no, it's ugly because it's true.

    Unpleasant as it is, you can't exactly call Sherman's perspective misogynistic, if only because the protagonist hates himself every bit as much.

    Crazy Eyes is the third directorial effort from Adam Sherman, and is, like his 2010 "Happiness Runs," based on his own personal experiences, suggesting he either has a staggering sense of self-laceration or a just as noteworthy lack of awareness about audience empathy.

    Sherman's feature turns out to be enamored of the kind of reality that gets left out of movies not because it's provocative or controversial, but because it isn't particularly interesting.

    While the male characters are certainly not presented as models of enlightened behavior, their antics and crises are indulged in a manner not extended to their female counterparts.
