This Cassavetes inspired road movie makes you want to root for the down on his luck singer who wanders aimlessly like an Asian American Man in Black. Like all rock n' roll films, there's always tinges of sadness and cynicism. But, with a crush-worthy performance by Lynn Chen as our hero's object of affection, the film is fulfilling but leaves you wanting more, and also provides that ray of hope for said hero. SV is actually part 1 of a planned trilogy, so I can't wait to see where Goh's journey goes next!
Glad I got to see it at the SIFF too, managed to score a signed copy of the DVD along with the soundtrack! Rock on!
The movie follows Goh Nakamura (who plays himself) on a journey of self-discovery as his quirky, talentless-yet-egocentric "new best friend" and "wingman" (played by Chad Stoops) forces him to ponder the romance (or lack thereof) in his life.
Goh's music was the inspiration for the film and deserves accolades apart from it; but when combined with Boyle's film-making skills, it's indie perfection.
