Editorial Reviews

STUCK! is director Steve Balderson's homage to film noir women-in-prison films. Faithfully re-producing the genre with a modern, tongue-in-cheek twist, expect all the hallmarks of a classic prison movie complete with a wrongly accused heroine, hard boiled dames, diabolical alliances, forbidden love, cat-fighting cuties, a sadistic warden, and corrupt prison guards. STUCK! is the story of Daisy, an innocent young woman framed for killing her mother. Condemned by the press and the public, Daisy is found guilty of murder and sentenced to die by hanging. This jazzy, finger-snapping, broads-behind-bars film is a throwback to another era, with terse Tennessee Williams-style verbal sparring, non-stop action and enough bad-girl jailhouse hi-jinks to make the audience lose the distinction between good and evil.

I did not begin to take this seriously, and I started watching it with that thought in mind. This was definitely a low budget flick, and the plot, dialogue and attempt at 'noir' showed that. My opinion: not terrible, but definitely not worth the watch as it was a painful experience trying to sit through this. The image on the marquee poster (or DVD box or whatever) seems to show more provocative possibilities, but it is a bait-and-switch, and to me certainly was not worth the time to watch. In fact, I fast-forwarded it several times, watching what would appear to be interesting scenes which instead proved to be just as plodding and ridiculous.

A great jazz soundtrack supports this somewhat depressing story of a sweet, innocent, stunning young woman wrongfully accused and convicted of her mother's murder. Sentenced to hang for her mother's murder, the young woman finds herself amidst four dynamically different women who eventually become friends and the closest thing to family she has. An antagonistic prison guard, portrayed very well as I found myself wanting to punch her several times over, is the puppet of a warden who's rarely seen and never audibly speaks.
For the most part, this is a very tastefully made film with only a few moments of nudity and sensuality. A 20-Aughties conception of life, legal system, and prison in the 1950's that occasionally feels satirical, but the heart-heavy story sticks the landing. If you're looking for a 1970's Pam Grier-style women in prison film, where the prisoners wear slightly oversized T shirts or tank tops and underwear as the inmate uniform and end up topless multiple times, this isn't one. With the "love it, like it, okay, dislike, hate" rating system it lands above "okay" and falls slightly short of "like it." Like another reviewer said, I hope to see more Starina Johnson films.

Likeable characters make this movie better than ok. It falls somewhere between the tepid politically correct WIP movies and the sleazier, raunchier counter parts, all while attempting (and failing) to capture the feel of the WIP movies from the '50's. The dialogue is so so. The (clothed) lesbian mutual masturbation scene is provocative; but it's the charisma of the actresses that keep this movie from being a complete dud. I really like the actress (Starina Johnson) who played the protaganist. Hope to see her in other features in the future.

Hard to believe someone actually spent their time and money to make this. Don't waste yours watching it.
Cliche to the max and impossible to take seriously. Possibly the lowest budget feature length film ever made. There's no indication the girl ever had an attorney, and a mere suggestion that she actually had a trial. I suppose it was all an attempt at some kind of character development. Main character isn't the worst actress ever, but she ends up looking more schizophrenic than developed.
Huge disparity between the volume of the filler music and the dialog. If you really hate yourself and choose to watch this anyway, keep your finger close to the volume button.

A Review of STUCK! by Steve Balderson
By Dr. Joseph Suglia, The Greatest Author in the World

If you want to properly understand Steve Balderson's fourth feature film, STUCK! (2009), you must disabuse yourself of the illusion that it is all a joke. Balderson is engaging in neither parody, nor satire, nor camp. His film is blissfully free of irony. There is no smugness here, no attempt to levitate above its story with postmodernist cynicism. Balderson's film demands to be taken seriously, despite its more felicitous moments.

The easiest way to describe STUCK! would be to say that it follows the downward slide of a Midwestern girl named Daisy (played by the angelic Starina Johnson) from innocence to corruption---or her ascension from fragility to strength. Daisy is the victim of the trumped-up charge of killing her mother (September Carter in one of the film's strongest performances), sentenced to death by hanging, and incarcerated. In prison, she keeps company with a religious fanatic (Mink Stole), a lesbian predator (Pleasant Gehman), a serial widow (Susan Traylor), and a withdrawn infanticide who suffers from echolalia (the Go-Gos' beautiful Jane Wiedlin). All these women have to make their lives tolerable are music, passion, storytelling... and the desire for revenge.

From a narrow perspective, there are clichés---because clichés are unavoidable when developing any story that is set in a prison. Balderson and screenwriter Frank Krainz had a difficult decision to make. They could have resolved that no clichés would materialize in the space of their production (and thus have fallen prey to them). Instead, they made the more intelligent decision and welcomed and affirmed the women-in-prison conventions that appear in their film.

I am going to use more than one word for this review because I don't think Amazon would rate it otherwise. The word is STINKER! Don't waste your time noting to see here.
