Top Customer Reviews
Script: D- (Abysmal)
Editing: F (non-existent)
Characters: Annoying (C-)
Videography: Low-budget and annoying, with little color and recurring, pointless BW video clips by the desperate main character, degrading a simplistic film even further (D)
Plot: Forced, padded and lacking in interest (C-)
Pacing: (D) Assume your audience is intelligent. OK, so the guy is a voyeur and makes compulsive videos of people. We get it, depict that for 15 minutes, then move on. You don't need 60 minutes of dogged perseveration!
Character development (C-): There is no real development here, only a realization of the need to socialize more.
Humor (C-): Little if any.
Likeability of characters: (C) There is not much about these characters that makes them likeable. Paul is meticulous and neat, and his best friend "saves" his life. Cool, but not exactly Tolstoy.
Message of film: (C-) Hasn't jelled. Voice-overs by the best friend would have been terrifically helpful.
DISCUSSION: Brendan Bradley was mesmerizing and very moving in Redwoods (in my top 10). He has a wonderful face made up of perfect features (dazzling teeth and smile, a swan nose, strong jaw with dimple, sweet and inquisitive eyes, and a long, Mt. Rushmore forehead). The bad news - which makes him adorable - is that these features don't belong on the same face. How endearing! He would be a helluva guy to know, probably an outstanding friend, and a sexy lover (especially for another guy). He is visibly quite intelligent and a powerful actor. So how the hell did he ever get sucked into this schlocky, boring minor flick about a total noodnick? See Redwoods and forgive him this professional lapse of judgment. I threw the DVD away.
