4.0 out of 5 stars If "May" Was a Guy Named "Roman" July 26, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Here's your boring plot synopsis...ready..."May"
Want another one? OK.
Roman spends his days working at a metal shop,
With no TV in his apartment, he spends his afternoons staring out his front window,
Staring at a world he wants to be apart of,
Staring at the same girl everyday.
Is he lonely, or is he in love? Or maybe he's just obsessed?

Angela Bettis & Lucky McKee reverse roles in what is essentially the same movie as "May"
I would really prefer to see Lucky direct, but I'll take what I can get.

At first glance this movie appears to be shot on a home camcorder.
But after the first few scenes it gets better
(Or maybe I just got used to it, I don't know)
Anyway it starts off really slow,
but if you stay with it,
you'll be rewarded when it finally picks itself up
Just when you think this flick can't get any duller, your heart does a double back-flip with a half gainer into your throat.
That's when you're hooked.
And when the narrative starts, (Halfway through the movie mind you.) your eyes are glued wide-open.

Now for the details:
The acting is enjoyable, great characters galore. (I love the nature chick) & Lucky does a better job than you'd think he would.
The lighting leaves alot to be desired, but it's forgivable.
Despite the unnecessary, trippy dream sequences it's a good story, starts out slow but keeps you interested & wondering what'll happen next.
My only complaint is that the dialogue is ridiculously low, while the soundtrack is amazingly loud, so you'll have to keep playing with the volume throughout the entire movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely an interesting film February 27, 2007
By tunecar
Format:DVD
I feel very fortunate to have been able to grab a promo copy of this film. It is a rather dark look into the life of someone who could be your normal 'shy guy'. However, this one's got a secret that he's now got to punish himself for. The movie moves a little slowly, but definitely gives itself time to build up the characters (not hard, considering it's focused on 'Roman' (Lucky McGee), who gets almost all the screen time). By the end of the film, I was really starting to feel for the character and hoping to see things go his way, despite his issues. I have watched this movie a few times now, and will be continuing to do so quite a few more...and am looking forward to the regular DVD release so I can check out the bonus features. I would recommend this film to anyone who loves horror, as well as general fans of Lucky McGee or Angela Bettis. Glad to see another good one come out!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Instant Classic! April 28, 2010
Format:DVD
I brought a 4-movie DVD at Wal-Mart for just $5.00 so my hopes of seeing something original was nil. But as soon as I began to watch "Roman" I put away my paperback and quickly became entranced.

Director Angela Bettis brings us something original and brillint with "Roman," the morbid story of a loner, Roman, played with true brilliance by Lucky McKee, who also wrote the screenplay. Most of the story occurs in a sleazy, low-rent apartment complex and the shabby ambiance rings true. With outstanding camera work, lighting, and an amazing musical score by Jaye Barnes/Poperratic, the descent into true psychosis rings true. Especially chilling is the bizarre black and white cartoon of a skeletal boy on a ghost horse that the anti-hero watches.

What's great about "Roman" is that this no formulaic movie where you can figure out every twist of the plot before it happens. You're kept being surprised througout and thanks to Lucky McKee's extraordinary portrait of a psycho, you're enwrapped in this eerie, dark little world.

Nectar Rose, an unknown actress to me, is perfect as Eva, the dream girl.

What's also striking is Angela Bettis' technique of using very short scenes, some lasting only a few seconds as we watch Roman's steady slide into insanity.

This is a true treat for any movie psycho fan who seeks an outstanding film experience.

Bettis proves once and for all that to create a movie triumph like this gem, you don't need multi-million dollar budgets and big name stars. All you need is a brilliant cast and crew to triumph over all others.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Odd Little Film September 11, 2012
Format:DVD
Roman stars Lucky McKee (who normally directs) as a shy social outcast who accidentally kills a girl (played by Kristen Bell) that he has a crush on. He keeps her body on ice in his bathtub. His depressed life changes when a strange woman becomes interested in him. This is an odd little movie. When it first starts you can easily tell that it is an low-budget film with bad camera work and lighting. I almost pushed the stop button, but I gave it a chance and I'm glad that I did. It is a strange movie, more of a thriller than a horror film. I actually felt sorry for Roman!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a horror film and different in a bad way? January 10, 2011
Format:DVD
I will be honest. This movie came in a set with 3 other horror movies (titled CLASSIC horror movies) for $5 so in that case, it was hit and miss if this movie would be good or not. The plot as to what the movie was about seemed interesting when I read it on the cover, but I felt this movie was horrible, mainly the plot. The acting itself was fine. Kristen Bell's character was very lively and funny, especially that part about the baked beans. Lucky McKee, whom I've never heard of, played his very odd, weird, strange character Roman fine and Nectar Rose, whom I've also never heard of, played Eva, who was also a lively character. The acting was overall okay, nothing really to complain about. That's really the only reason I gave it 2 stars/5. There were just some little things I didn't like:

I didn't like how this movie was called a horror movie because there really wasn't anything scary about it at all. Roman kills his neighbor (Kristen Bell), and then at the end Eva (Nectar Rose) kills herself basically after Roman unknowing verbally agrees to it. To me, a horror movie actually has parts of the movie that randomly happen to scare you, or if there is an eventual death, it has good buildup to it. None of that occurs in this movie. In this movie, Roman does hear these voices on occasion in his head, but it's basically his obsession thoughts or him thinking to himself what he should do next. He occasionally has brief flashbacks of the girl he killed. However, it's nothing at all that gets your heart racing, it's basically guilt. So I don't see where the horror comes into play.

I know this was a low budget movie, but still, the way this movie was filmed, it only had like 6 scenery places...
