Customer Reviews

Maybe I'm just not smart enough or sophisticated enough get it.
B. Wheeler
When one character has to be in every scene, it should be played by an actress who has a wider range and a lot more experience.

While the little dialogue there was wasn't horrible, it was quite random and not cohesive.

I think this film offers an interesting ride for any film lover that's looking for something different (i.e. - a story that promps the viewer to think about the story instead of force-feeding him/her the entire plot in easy-to-digest portions). The story has a life to it that's quite intoxicating, if you can get into it.

The performance by Cyndi Williams is very raw and couragous and is the glue that holds the film together. We get a glimpse of her painfully ordinary life and its daily struggles. By some twist of fate, she finds herself on a bizarre journey of constant discovery with no easy answers or conclusions.

After sitting through the usual dumbed-down Hollywood summer blockbusters, it was refreshing to see a film that required a little effort on my part. Honestly, it wasn't much of an effort. I was quickly taken in by the wonderful and honest performances, the great cinematography and the haunting score and ambience (Justin Hennard, who directed the equally wonderful and enigmatic MOONLIGHT BY THE SEA, worked on the sound design for this one). Overall, I really enjoyed the film. I was saddened by the bare-bones DVD. I would have really liked to hear a commentary on this one.

Recommended for adventurous movie-goers looking for something different.

I appreciated what this solemn little indie film was trying to capture and could somewhat identify with Julia's compulsion to search for something possibly beyond this world, but not knowing exactly what it was, what it represented or where to find it. Central themes revolve around psychic and emotional dissonance. Camera approach is almost cinema vérité, adding to the sense of anguish and anxiety that permeates each scene. This film (for me, anyway) is a haunting study of alienation, despair, longing, desire and ultimately escape for something *MORE.

The actress Cyndi Williams gave a superb performance as an archetypal housewife, or perhaps, more accurately, struggling member of the Western middle class who feels the pull of the abyss on her psyche, represented by recurring visions of a loft-like space with blinding white light at the windows. Some viewers may quickly categorize this woman as someone who is battling and succumbing to a form of mental illness--perhaps experiencing a nervous breakdown-- but I'm not so sure that's completely the case here. She suffers migraines, passes out in the supermarket and at home, secretly smokes, is chronically late for work and finally crashes her vehicle when she blacks out behind the wheel just after having one of her visions of the ROOM. Upon waking from her blackout at road's edge, she realizes that she has crashed into the sign of an airplane in flight. She's next to the airport. The sign of the plane becomes a symbol for her, as does the sound of a plane taking off on the runway next to her.

I am aware that I am running against the herd, but I loved this movie.
I loved the music and the ambiance, and even the "too obvious to be subliminal"
messages. The movie is quiet and I thought had a mysterious quality to it that I didn't
feel compelled to overanalyze. I actually watched this twice before buying it.

Spoiler alert. Seriously. I'm going to spoil this whole damn movie for you. And I'm not kidding here, you keep reading this you might as well just pack it in. Okay? All right then. Here goes... This movie has no damn ending!!! (Whew, thank you. I feel much better now.) Cyndi Williams stars here as Julia Barker, a housewife besieged by life. She's overweight, her job sucks, she can't pay her bills, her husband doesn't think she's hot, her teenage daughter sneaks out of the house at night and on top of it all she has migraines. Seriously, her very very best day is, well, not very good. But then Julia starts passing out for no apparent reason and whenever she does she has visions of a large, empty, warehouse like room. What is this room? What happened there? How is it connected to Julia and why is she having these visions? These are the questions that drive the story and...pause for dramatic effect here... none of them are ever answered! (And seriously, how screwed up is that?) Julia, in an act of desperation, steals some money, flies to New York City and begins looking for her mysterious room. She meets some people and has some adventures but at the close of the movie she's learned nothing and is left sitting on a rooftop in the cold, depressed and confused. So, here's my thing. Maybe this is art. Maybe I'm just not smart enough or sophisticated enough get it. (It's possible. I'm not all that bright.) And maybe there's some great esoteric message here I'm just not getting. But to me it mostly looks lame storytelling with a sort of college level "Ooo, look how smart I am." ending.

The tough part here is that Cyndi Williams does a nice job. And in truth, overall the movie is nicely shot and directed. Hopefully everyone involved with have better material to work with next time.
