Complete Mess
10 August 2007 | by mandyprotakovSee all my reviews

I stumbled onto this movie by accident. What a mess!! Its only artistic value was that of a train wreck. It was difficult not to watch for a while to see how many ways they could do a bad job.

First the photography. I'm sure the filmmakers will wax poetic over using video and bad camera-work to give an impression of "reality". All they did was give an impression of lack of aptitude.

Then the acting... Except for Tom Sizemore (and even he wasn't doing such a great job) it was Afternoon at the Amateur Hour (and that's being mean to Amateur Hour!) As for the direction, it consisted at attempts at shaking the camera in lieu of direction.

Oh, and the sound was ludicrously bad, as if they had used a Mic from a video-cam (which they probably did).

I'm asking you, what's the point of doing a movie like this if you're not going to even try to do it well?
