I like this one, however it isn't what I expected it to be, nor was it what I was looking for. Yet I watched, and enjoyed with intrigue. It held my attention all the way through in spite of the picture and sound quality not being all that great. Especially the sound which is sometimes a bit hard to pick up on. There were some good black and white scenes as seen through the camera David uses to record most of the encounters he has with people. Afterwards, I felt a strange desire for a cigarette and a nap, thus I was obviously satisfied.
I suppose it's up to each individual viewer as to what the writer is trying to say, but for this viewer I suppose no matter who you are or where you're at in life, we all face certain struggles with which we must come to terms, and can't always change channels as we might wish to do in our cable tv society. A delightful film to watch, with a good mix of comedy and drama to hold your attention. Although the character of David is gay as are a few of his encounters, there is an equal mix of straight people trying to find some stability in their own world. Thus I can't really endorse this as a "gay film". It is not a romance story, but it also isn't your average run of the mill coming of age film either.
The acting is superb, and the casting was very good for each part portrayed. If you're looking for something a little different, then this might be one you will enjoy watching. I give it 3 and half stars.
