5.0 out of 5 stars Wht a cool little picture September 10, 2010
This is why independent movies are so much cooler than "Hollywood Blockbusters". An ending that is both happy and sad. For me at least. I don't want to ruin it for those of you that haven't seen it yet, but when you have a simple little story about a detective investigating his own daughter's death, it's overall not about the secrets you find incriminating your little girls good name, but how you're ultimately to blame for it, as a parent. Filmed in such tight quarters of her one bedroom apartment in Venice Beach, California, the claustrophobia has it's own mood and is as much of a character to the film as the cast is. This is where she is found dead with a man's belt around her neck and a camera set up at the foot of her bed. Of course the tape that is ejected from the camera has everything recorded on it up until the moment before she died, but maybe -just maybe, does any of the footage reveal who might have owned this belt. Mmm? This is where one, the haunt begins and two, Detective Lambord starts breaking every rule in the book to bring justice to Stephanie's murder. As he rummages through Stephanie's crime scene, he is not only searching for evidence to solve the case, but he is also relearning the daughter he grew apart from long ago. The movie jogs back and forth between Lambord's present world and Stephanie's dirty past. Effectively done by cutting between Lambord working and the footage of Stephanie as he watching tape after tape from a box of her home videos. Stephanie, though innocent, young, and beautiful on the outside, is nothing but a dark, man manipulating, sex addict that flirts with drugs and death every waking hour of her life. Read more ›

1.0 out of 5 stars A Tedious Insult to Movie Lovers August 10, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This is the first time I've ever taken the time to give a movie, and I use that word loosely, a 1-star rating. I'm only doing it to save you, the potential viewer, money (and more importantly) time. I am a great lover and supporter of the indie film; but this sad, futile attempt at a thriller completely misses the mark. Playback is slow, tedious, and thoroughly devoid of any meaningful plot. The dialogue is stilted and, frankly, stupid. In order to enjoy a movie, the viewer must at least care about the protagonist -- even anti-heroes require some charm or appeal. Stephanie has none. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Her detective father has all the charisma of dirty laundry. I cannot believe I made it through this horrible picture and I only tortured myself to see an amazing ending because, why else would any sane person give this movie any stars? The ending, but the way, is foolish and ABSURD. To be fair, the acting wasn't awful -- the script was. Painfully awful. Do not be fooled by the other ratings (including the IMDB rating). The ratings must have been made by the movies filmmaker, actors, and crew. This was a narcissistic attempt at gritty film-making and they utterly failed. Playback? I want my time and money back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense...Disturbing...Haunting August 31, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Exceptionally well-made, if highly discomforting, "Playback" tells the tale of a Los Angeles police detective desperately trying to find out who murdered his lovely yet profoundly disturbed and emotionally troubled daughter, who was compulsively promiscuous to the point of self-destruction. Upon discovering her strangled body in the bedroom of her small house in Venice, her father uncovers the tragic legacy she left behind - countless homemade pornographic tapes she'd made of herself with a dizzying array of men, as well as pornographic magazines in which she is featured. While one videotape holds the clue as to who killed this young woman, another reveals the reason for her descent into degradation and eventual murder, in which she discusses her estranged father who came back into her life, only to sexually molest her long before she was in her teens - which is often the case with women who are sexually promiscuous and/or involved in pornography and prostitution. This is an intense and deeply haunting film. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely one of the worst movies of all time August 21, 2014

Absolutely one of the worst movies of all time. Cheap, degrading and worst of all pointless. If I could give it a big fat zero, I would
