4.0 out of 5 stars An awesome movie from this Sophmore director January 13, 2006
By Madman
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Keep Your Distance was an engrossing movie dealing with a multitude of relationships. There is the marriage of two people with very little in common. A serious relationship between two good looking people who seem to have it all; good looks, a creative and interesting relationship, yet lack the key ingredient: trust. Between these two relationships come some other minor connection between a notable politician, one of his main supporters, and a fellow employee.
Sound confusing? Well, in the beginning it is just a little, but more so it is incredibly enthralling. Our introduction to the two main characters places them in a situation that portrays them in a less than likable light, but in no time it is revealed who they really are and we can't help but root for them for the remainder of the flick.
Through their endeavors we see David Dailey (Gil Bellows) a notable radio talk show host and Melody (Jennifer Westfeldt), a traveling saleswoman for the pharmacy industry, strike up a friendship in which they help each other through difficult times. The attraction they have to each other is evident but is not fully explored because they are each too busy dealing with their own failing relationships to dive into something new.
There are many funny moments to be had in the first two thirds of the film with the last third delving into some more serious situations. Riveting from beginning to end, we see the progression of all of the relationships come full circle...and then a little more. While the ending was a bit anti-climatic, this doesn't negate the incredible intertwining stories throughout the majority of the movie and a couple of A+ performances as well.
The main flaw of this film is that there is so much plot that it is impossible to fit it into 90 minutes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie March 12, 2006
Format:DVD
Even though this has a made for tv look about it it's a very fine effort. Filled with twists and turns keep your distance win leave you satisfied with the time spent viewing. it has elements of sex,actual violence,betrayal,mistrust and realtionship troubles which leaves the players in the movie going aweful lengths in order to get their inter and intra personal selves in order.

I recommend this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent movie.. Worth a look for a Mystery/Thriller. November 5, 2012
By Buzby J
Format:DVD
Decent Indy film. There were some things to like but not a lot to dislike. The acting was good throughout most of the cast. The script was nothing special but the relationship between the 2 leads was odd so I guess that's what got my attention. I put the film on to watch while I was doing something else and it drew my attention to it away from what I was doing. I'm not sure why but not a lot of films do that. The soundtrack music was catchy too. Its an interesting watch. I would recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting movie, much better than expected January 18, 2012
By L. Lamb
Format:DVD
I'm not into the thriller genre, so I would never have watched this had it not been for Christian Kane. So I "made the sacrifice" and watched it to see what I knew was a great scene with Christian and his real life band (at the time, some changes since then)singing in a bar.

I was pleasantly surprised! Basically rich boy (Christian Kane), wants to marry good girl girlfriend (Jennifer Westfeldt)and she is not ready. So he pursues. Meanwhile she has casually met Gil Bellows and well... you can figure it out from here. Gil's wife has some interesting hobbies, Christian's father plays a role in the background, and in the end, it works more as a drama than a thriller. Let's say these people are all alive at the end, with all their limbs, something I don't expect from reading the box.

Totally worth watching, and triple that if you are a Kane fan. "Sean Voight" singing is fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Keep Your Distance' a stellar, sexy thriller June 9, 2006
Format:DVD
Stu Pollard's second major release is an intricate and beautifully filmed psychological thriller. The film opens with a stunning visual presentation of the story's setting, Louisville, Ky., that makes the town look like a postcard. The bold colors of the setting match those of Pollard's characters in "Keep Your Distance," which pay proper homage to the clannish and quirky nature of the people of in a modern town struggling to retain its Southern charm.

The pacing in the script was perfect...the story weaves wry humor, honest cynicism, and a disturbingly real underlying pathology and pathos, all necessary to pull off a complex psychological thriller. The emphasis is on psychology more than murder mystery, which makes the plot more interesting than that of the typical movie formula. The long pauses and intense looks that Pollard and his actors wove into the script give the audience doses of suspense, sadness, and humor in equal measure.

Particularly engrossing is the relationship between Melody and David, played by Jennifer Westfeldt and Gil Bellows. Their initial meeting is painfully awkward, but their connection is obvious from the start. Physical chemistry is there, but moreover, the characters have a bittersweet longing toward each other, and the world views they share have just enough cynicism to make their exchange edgy, and just enough idealism to make it romantic. Christian Kane is a standout as a wonderfully creepy and unpredictable jilted boyfriend. Kim Raver is notably strong as David's sexy, blatantly narcissistic wife.

The end of the movie is simple and satisfying. However, this film is more about the journey than the destination. Pollard has crafted a gripping story that relies on the fascinating trappings of human folly, whether based in conspiracy or naivete, to keeo the audience hooked.
