SUBLIME was an experiment on nearly every level. Raw Feed is a Warner Bros. experiment to make "horror" films within the BROADEST definition of the genre. Films designed to be released directly to DVD.
John Shiban, Tony Krantz and Daniel Myrick would each make a film in 15 days for a budget of roughly 1.5 million dollars. Any one of them essentially could do whatever they wanted to do - to play into the genre, to satirize it, to bend it. Mr. Krantz's notion was to take the present atmosphere of fear and doubt that has pervaded our world; the very real statistics about "health care"; and the horror of the Terry Schiavo case, and make a movie.
My involvement in the film came out of my close friendship with Tony. Inspired by an Ambrose Bierce short story "An Occurence at Owl Creek Bridge"...the mystery of coma consciousness...the idea that when you close your eyes, your visual experience is limited to what you can remember...we crafted the script.
Trying to capture our version of a fear-and-incident-inspired "coma consciousness" led to the film's intentionally languorous and lurid pace. It was a specific choice. Right or wrong, we were determined to stay true to George's vision: George is stuck in a 10-month-plus Persistent Vegetative State within which all of the things that he worries about manifest.Read more ›
The acting is quite impressive, and so is the writing and cinematography. Kudos to all of the individuals who were involved in the making of this film as I find that they have all gone above and beyond their call of duty considering the time and budgetary challenges that this movie presented.
I recommend this film to anyone who enjoys stories which challenge you and make you think and talk about what you just saw. If movies like Memento, Insomnia, Jacob's Ladder and anything that Lynch or Cronenberg have made adornes your DVD collection, then Sublime will make a good addition!
Rating 0 to 5 stars
Story = 3 It was to slow paced and gets bizarre at times.
Direction = 2.5 I felt the director and writer tried to cram to much into the story and the pacing and lengh of time hurt the movie.
Acting = 4 Was very good across the board with primary and secondary characters.
Suspence/tension = 3.7 This movie has both and its palatable.
Violence = Yes, but not over the top nor very graphic.
Gore = 3+ Some scenes of surgery and torture.
Sex/Nudity = Yes, but only the back of Zoe's (Coiro) upper torso.
Foul Language = Yes, all the big 4 letter ones, but not in every sentence.
Entertainment Value = 2 to 3 stars. Its slow paced and almost 2 hours long without a lot of action. It may be hard to follow for some with its bizarre scenes and storyline.
