Incredibly unique cinema.
22 January 2004 | by stedrazedSee all my reviews

ABBY SINGER is the best and most extraordinary film I saw during my week at the film festivals in Park City, Utah. Besides the fact that is an extremely well-acted, -shot and -edited film, the way it was made is an amazing, anomalous achievement. The film was shot for under $1,500 entirely on Canon XL-1 mini-DV, with no script, and it features 23 big-name celebrities including Brad Pitt, Robert Redford, Patricia Arquette, Jeff Goldblum, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jodie Foster, Roger Ebert, Don Cheadle and many more. Lead actors Clint Palmer and Ryan Williams, the latter of whom also directed, shot and edited the film, both turn in brilliant, fearless performances. The film, though entirely improvised, has great dialogue and an intriguing storyline. The cinematography and sound are great, especially taking into account the very limited budget for which the film was made. Thanks to the support of Pitt, Gyllenhaal and Ebert, the film may get widespread distribution soon. I encourage everyone to see it as soon as possible.
