Editorial Reviews

David Arquette delivers a stunning, dramatic performance as Jack MacKenzie, a divorced father, recovering alcoholic and former hotshot Hollywood composer now working as a limousine driver. Still trying to cope with the tragic accident that cost him his marriage and career, Jack lives in a world of creative frustration, economic desperation and deep emotional pain. But when he becomes obsessed with a sexy, yet equally unstable, model/actress (Bijou Phillips of ''Raising Hope'' and Hostel: Part II), Jack's life will veer towards the very edge of madness. Vivica A. Fox (Kill Bill), Lin Shaye (Insidious), Tom Bower (Crazy Heart) and Nicholas Bishop (''Body Of Proof'') co-star in this intense film!

Format:DVD
"It was an accident, noone is to blame, except him...that man." Jack (Arquette) is a struggling composer who takes a job driving a limousine to make ends meet. His life is a mix of AA meetings, hanging out with his young daughter and trying to get back in the business. After he gets a job driving a famous movie star he strikes up a friendship and thinks he found his way in. Little by little he tries to get his life back to how he wants, but there is always something in his way. There are some trailers for movies that give away the whole movie in the 2 minute clip and nothing is a surprise. There are trailers who give absolutly nothing away and you are left wondering what it is about. Then there is this movie. This movie is so undescribable that even the trailer doesn't do it justice. This movie is both beautiful and disturbing. This is the type of movie that makes you question everything you are seeing and wondering if it's real or a dream. I am the first person to say I don't think David Arquette is a good actor, but he deserves an Oscar nomination for this movie. He is that good in this. This is another movie that words will not do justice to. When the credits roll it feels like you can finally take a breath and wonder what it was you just saw. Overall, a movie with the pace of "Drive" but the feel of Aronofsky movie. Not a movie to just put in and veg out to. This one makes you think. I liked it. I give it a B+.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE HIGHS ARE MORE HIGH AND THE LOWS MORE FREQUENT July 30, 2012
Format:DVD
The film originally had the hideous title, "The Land of the Astronauts." There is a feeling of impending doom throughout the film. The music, lighting and unshaven look of our star Jack Mackenzie (David Arquette) all work in unison to give us a noir feel. Jack is a Hollywood composer who has fallen from grace. He desires to get back with his divorced wife (Carla Ortiz) and child Kate (Jacqueline Mackenzie). He attends AA meetings, was involved in an accident were someone died and now works as a limo driver.

The limo he is driving was the scene of a brutal murder where a limo driver cut the throat of his wife. Hitch (David Jean Thomas) who reminds us of a creepy Morgan Freeman, shows Jack the photos. He also collects items left behind in limos. Jack is also attempting a comeback. He has issues with his landlady (Lin Shaye) who wants a part in a film. While at an AA meeting, Jack meets the noir femme fatale Erica Long (Bijou Phillips). She is a model, singer, and actress attempting to pay her bills. Ironically she appears on vodka ads. Jack is inspired by her and quickly falls in love. They hit it off and seem to become soul mates, but alas Erica is clearly a girl Jack should not love.

We know something is going to happen and every tidbit clue that the film feeds us will all cleverly tie together. The goal is to figure it out before the film tells us. And then the end happens and you are suddenly tasked with trying to figure out what just happened. Enjoyable, but not for everyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too Ambiguous For My Taste June 23, 2012
Format:DVD
Writer-director Carl Colpaert's surreal Hollywood story, BLACK LIMOUSINE, has a lot going for it, including fine performances by David Arquette, Bijou Phillips and Tom Bower, as well as some nice camera work and intriguing visuals.

On the other hand, it has a story that, like David Lynch's masterful MULHOLLAND DR., bounces in and out of reality, but the difference between this and Lynch's film is that when BLACK LIMOUSINE has ended, one does not really know what was real and what was a dream or a hallucination.

Arquette plays a down-on-his-luck film composer, divorced and carrying the guilt that he may have been partially responsible for the automobile accident that claimed the life of his young daughter. Trying to pull his life together, he takes a job as a limo driver, attends AA meetings, and soon meets both a troubled actress (Phillips), with whom he wants to become romantically involved, and also an A-List actor (Nicholas Bishop), who just might be the key to reestablishing his music career.

How much of this is actually happening or is just one of Arquette's flights into his fantasy world, we are never sure.

That may be fine for some viewers, but not this one. I don't mind a somewhat ambiguous ending, but an utterly ambiguous picture is another animal altogether.

On DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Subtle, Yet Enthralling July 24, 2012
Format:DVD
While this is technically a movie, it is much more. The one hour and 40 minutes of cinema are sprinkled with segments of panoramas of amazing visual effects combined with haunting background, and sometimes foreground, music, and gently pulled along by powerful acting from start to finish. It is, thus, more of an experience than a movie.
Indeed, it is not for everyone. It is meant for those who really enjoy off-beat cinema. However, it is unfortunate that more people don't enjoy an experience like this. It is even more unfortunate that, as so often happens with movies that have amazing soundtracks, the music is created by relative unknowns who have no CDs on the market, and there is not even a CD soundtrack to the movie available. In sum, if you want to hear any of this amazing music again, you have to watch the movie again. But that's not such a bad thing, because the visuals come to life again.

For a movie based on a car...it was very pedestrian (no pun intended). I'll refer any car enhtusiasts to "Drive' with Ryan Gosling.
