Review

Billy Samoa Saleebey's "Rolling" a feature about eight Southern California youths caught in the throes of Ecstacy addiction, fits the bill nicely. Saleebey's camerawork is stylish, and his script is briskly paced and concise … --San Francisco Examiner

It s hard not to lose yourself in the entrancing world of Rolling. Ultimately, Rolling achieves what it sets out to do it makes popping 2 MDMA, dancing your ass off and waking up the next morning in a dumpster seem like a sexy and cool proposition. --Manhattan Movie Magazine

The giddy highs and crushing lows of Ecstasy use are felt by a group of people looking to escape their troubles in this well done indie drama. --New York Times

**1/2

"Rolling" is a low-budget independent film focused on a handful of young Angelenos who have all had experience with the drug Ecstasy. Done in the style of a you-are-there docudrama, the movie alternates between traditional dramatic sequences and staged interviews with the characters who speak directly to the camera about the drug and the effect it's had on their lives. (The term "rolling" refers to the high one gets when tripping on the drug).

The movie certainly means well, and there are definitely some lessons to be learned from the characters' experiences. And, in all fairness, director/co-writer Billy Samoa Saleebey doesn't engage in quite as much melodramatic finger-wagging as the material might have warranted. But the amateurishness of the execution - the jittery, handheld camera, the time-lapse psychedelics, the unconvincing performances, the lackluster writing - robs the movie of much of its impact. Somehow, when all the characters do is party and talk about partying, there isn't much room for them to grow and develop into compelling and engaging figures. As a result, we become detached observers rather than fully engaged participants in the scene - and that, given the urgency of the subject matter, is simply unacceptable.

The film Rolling is a look into a social scene that few have experienced; the Rave and Ecstacy scene in Los Angeles. In a docu-drama format, this films follows the lives of six young people who have relatively normal day-lives, and nights and weekends live the Rave and Ectasy life. The unknown actors do an excellent job of taking us into this lifestyle and are totally believable in their roles. The music and camera work add to the authenticity of this remarkable film. Absolutely outstanding!

I loved this movie!! It was a very accurate potrayal of the use and feeling of ecstasy. The unknown actors in this film did a fabulous job in their roles. If one didn't know any better one would think they actually did take ecstasy while shooting each scene. Defenitely the best rave movie I've ever seen!!

Funny movie but they had to ruin it with s sappy ending. It would have been better just to stick with original story.

Rolling is a dramatic film dressed up to look like a documentary about a group of heavy ecstasy users. Each character is introduced through an interview. They each seem to be unrelated to eachother. But as the film plays out - surprise, surprise - they end up connected in some way. Each act of the movie is about some aspect of ecstasy. I learned all the new words, that had interesting ecstasy use meaning. I learned how to and how to not buy the drug. What to do when you don't have money to buy the drug. What the etiquette is for sharing or not sharing the drug. How the drug will make me feel. Where I should take the drug. And what kinds of parties are the best for getting the drug.

If it sounds a bit like a drug lesson, that's pretty accurate. The director also tried to use visual clues for how a person might feel when taking the drug. It was all horribly cliched camera techniques - blurry slow shutter effect, ultrafast motion, choppy video, blurry focus or fuzzy views, and bright colors. Frankly the drug movies of the 60's and 70's did a better job of creating this feeling.

This film is just way too predictible. There are absolutely no surprises. The characters are just plain old annoying. I was so tired of listening to Rain complain about life and being miserable and pregnant. Summer had gorgeous eyes, but stupid self-centered words came out of her mouth. The blond guy that was supposed to be gay and a cross dresser, at least had some decent things to say. But he kept falling in and out of character and there was a very long moment of him putting on women's clothes, but when he goes out he's dressed in jeans and a little top. Clinton was just a dumb pig when he spoke. The older African American guy tried to sound like Tim Meadows, but was just dumb.

This actually turned out a lot better than I thought it was. I had actually quit watching, got mad at the movie and gave it away to a friend. My friend and I had an argument and he gave it back, and I thought "Figures. He knows I hated that movie." So it sat on my shelve collecting dust until just a week ago when I got so bored for something to watch I took it out and played it again. This time I watched the whole movie. It starts out like an annoying documentary with the actors giving commentary on their experiences with using Ecstacy My first thought was, "Who the ^*&^ cares?" And then when this commentary carried on halfway through the movie, "What the %$(^?" But I was so bored that I was willing to sit through even this and I must admit, people are right when they say "Good things come to those who wait." Or at least it was right this time. It has a really slow build up but if you too can be patient, you will not regret it.
