Here's your boring plot synopsis...ready..."May"
Want another one? OK.
Roman spends his days working at a metal shop,
With no TV in his apartment, he spends his afternoons staring out his front window,
Staring at a world he wants to be apart of,
Staring at the same girl everyday.
Is he lonely, or is he in love? Or maybe he's just obsessed?

Angela Bettis & Lucky McKee reverse roles in what is essentially the same movie as "May"
I would really prefer to see Lucky direct, but I'll take what I can get.

At first glance this movie appears to be shot on a home camcorder.
But after the first few scenes it gets better
(Or maybe I just got used to it, I don't know)
Anyway it starts off really slow,
but if you stay with it,
you'll be rewarded when it finally picks itself up
Just when you think this flick can't get any duller, your heart does a double back-flip with a half gainer into your throat.
That's when you're hooked.
And when the narrative starts, (Halfway through the movie mind you.) your eyes are glued wide-open.

Now for the details:
The acting is enjoyable, great characters galore. (I love the nature chick) & Lucky does a better job than you'd think he would.
The lighting leaves alot to be desired, but it's forgivable.
Despite the unnecessary, trippy dream sequences it's a good story, starts out slow but keeps you interested & wondering what'll happen next.
My only complaint is that the dialogue is ridiculously low, while the soundtrack is amazingly loud, so you'll have to keep playing with the volume throughout the entire movie.

Angela Bettis never ceases to amaze me. Not only is she the best actor in the world, but she's a damn good director and writer. And longtime collaborator Lucky McKee is a darn good sport to let her turn the camera on him and put him in a role that takes advantage of what may well be a natural tendency toward awkward introversion and stiffness. Yes, his Roman is a character we're supposed to laugh at and feel pity for at the same time we're scared of him and disgusted by him, but he's also someone that we're supposed to be impressed by, because alongside the horror story here is a story about Roman coming of age, coming out of his own shell, and even trying to be a better man. The movie is dotted and dolloped with the sort of refreshing humor that Bettis is able to bring to even the most somber of her roles, and I was so happy to see the little skeleton troubadour get a full solo! Adorable!

I feel very fortunate to have been able to grab a promo copy of this film. It is a rather dark look into the life of someone who could be your normal 'shy guy'. However, this one's got a secret that he's now got to punish himself for. The movie moves a little slowly, but definitely gives itself time to build up the characters (not hard, considering it's focused on 'Roman' (Lucky McGee), who gets almost all the screen time). By the end of the film, I was really starting to feel for the character and hoping to see things go his way, despite his issues. I have watched this movie a few times now, and will be continuing to do so quite a few more...and am looking forward to the regular DVD release so I can check out the bonus features. I would recommend this film to anyone who loves horror, as well as general fans of Lucky McGee or Angela Bettis. Glad to see another good one come out!

I love this movie. It's a sad story about life, death and loneliness. There's some quirky humor with some stunning costars! For those looking for a fast paced horror film, this isn't it, it's more psychological and imagery oriented. The directing by Angela Bettis is amazing, i've never seen a visually stunning small budget indie film quite like this.
Roman is a loner, and by loner, his nightly entertainment is sitting in front of his window with a beer and cigarette in his hands, waiting for his pretty neighbor to walk by. I won't spill too many details, it has obsession, fear, loneliness and delusions perfectly portrayed.
(slight spoilers in comparing May and Roman)
Now, some people are trying to say that this is the same as May, i guess it sort of is, it's written by the same writer of May, The girl who played May is directing, and the writer is now playing Roman. I LOVED that, because while they have a few similarities, it's completely different. The psychologically behind May's rage is completely different than Roman's mistakes. May is admittedly a killer, she kills MANY people. Roman on the other hand has a moment of.. not so much rage, as a fear of being alone (still wrong, still murder, but it's not May-rage) . Roman is stylized different as well, you can definitely see the similarities, but at the same time see completely different things, like fire and ice. So to say that Roman is a male May, is rather wrong. They are almost polar opposites, because of the guilt, May wanted a friend so desperately to be perfect and hers, while Roman i feel just wanted a friend and to forget what happened.
