Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Hard-core fans of Kevin Smith (auteur of Clerks, Chasing Amy, and Dogma) will find Drawing Flies essential viewing. This Canadian film features many actors who would later appear in Smith's own directorial efforts, including Jason Lee, Renee Humphrey, Carmen Lee, and Jason Mewes (better know as Jay of Jay and Silent Bob). Lee plays Donner, the unofficial leader of a troupe of slackers who've just been kicked off of welfare. Donner convinces his friends that what they need to turn their lives around is a camping trip; but as they go deeper and deeper into the Canadian forests, Donner grows increasingly erratic and finally reveals that visions have told him to search for Bigfoot. Smith has a cameo in his Silent Bob persona. Non-fans can probably leave this one on the shelf. --Bret Fetzer

unless you're talking about picture and sound quality, which in this case is the absolute worst i've seen on any dvd.. but apparently, they did the best with what they had.
What we have here is an extremely bizarre half-story about a man losing his grasp on his mind, and how far his friends are willing to follow him into his madness. No, it doesn't always work.. no, the acting isn't always the best.. but it's a dvd i don't regret buying. Jason Lee, Carmen Lee, and Renee Humphrey turn in pretty good performances.. and even the stoner-eyed Mewes makes good with some on target delivery at times. View Askew fans will also get a chuckle out of seeing Scott Mosier in a diaper.. as well as Silent Bob's cameo, and the credits that state Silent Bob was played by himself.
On the other hand, i'm not sure what this movie has to offer non View Askew fans.. if you're not a fan, you should probably pass on this one.. unless you feel like buying an EXTREMELY low budget indie film about stoners in the woods and sasquatch.
In any case, this DVD is... enough to take a gamble on even if you're not sure about it.

The movie itself is a disappointment. And if you're buying the DVD for the Kevin Smith commentary track—that was a disappointment too. Really nothing in here for anyone but the really hardcore View Askew fans (but they probably already own it).

I love the soundtrack and I actually like the raw quality of black & white with the texture of a 1930's reefer madness film. I don't think that this version has been digitally enhanced and I feel that this film will become a huge cult bonanza in DVD sales. It's refreshing to see the actors that became better known early in their career. I will not spoil the film but it grows on you, or at least myself. I was pissed the first time that I put the disc in the player and didn't pay attention, I was being lazy and expected Hollywood to burst through my television and entertain me. This film is meant to be carefully watched since the dialog is crucial. This is not like putting on a copy of "2012" or "Pathfinder" and hear your room quake and have the film immediately suck you in. Since I view an average of two films a day I set up a big TV in my gym and most big budget films grab me with modern psychology and the science of immediate gratification through sound and shock almost immediately . But if a film viewer relaxes and imitates the mood that the cast creates through a smoke screen of well, smoke, then I believe you will have fun. I hope I helped. by Craig Barr.

... I actually like it. I'm bordering on loving it, its only a matter of time and viewings. Maybe I'm just too big of a Jason Lee fan to not love this movie. In the first few minutes of was inclined to agree with my View Askew bretheren that it wasn't the greatest film ever made, but then Carmen started climbing over the welfare desk and I said "I've gotta watch this a little more". I'm glad I stuck around, very glad indeed. The second Jason started dancing with the Sasqautch, I said "this is one of the greatest movies ever!!" I don't know what it is, but that moment is hilarious. I nearly fell out of my chair. I'm serious. So, in short I finished watching it and I have come to like it more and more each time I have seen it. It has a certain inescapable charm. I don't care what anyone else says. If you like View Askew and you like Jason, you should, I repeat should, like this movie. I can't garauntee it. Rent it if you are in doubt. Its worth at least that.

DRAWING FLIES

Like almost everybody else I went out and bought this film based on the fact that it was a View Askew Production and starred Jason Lee. But unlike almost everyone else who has viewed this film I think that this movie is brilliant. I' am sure people who are reading this and have seen the film are gasping, but if you really sit down and watch the film for what it is I guarantee you will believe the same as me.

The story follows a group of friends who live in Canada and are all about to be kicked out of their apartment due to the fact that they have no jobs and are not granted welfare. Donner, who is the unofficial leader of the group decides he wants to go find Bigfoot or a sasquatch as he likes to point out. Knowing his friends will never go for it he decides to trick them into following him on this exhibition by saying his Uncle has a cabin in the woods that they can stay in. Since they will no longer have an apartment to live in they decide [some reluctantly] to accompany him on this trip. As they go deeper and deeper into the woods Donner starts to lose his grip on sanity and the group is even ran off by a group of men in large diapers. Az even falls from a tree and gets messed up pretty bad, and when his cut gets infected it becomes life threatening. So with no where to go once all is revealed the friends have a choice, stay with Donner as he slips into insanity or try and make their way back.

As with any View Askew film the performers for the film are familiar faces for the most part. All will recognize leading man Jason Lee in the role of Donner.
