Very nice piece of work for a Thesis!
Everything seemed to come together for this hopeful first-time director.
The characters were fleshed out well, the story slowly evolved giving you a sense of longetivity of teasing and stress between the main characters.
About 3/4 of the way through there seemed to be a sense that it should end. This would have made for an ending that would give you the same feeling as when the movie actually ended, without additions of more flashbacks. A number of people expressed concern at the Q&A session with the Director about the timeline issue. He stated that it was meant to be, in some spots at least, open-ended as to when certan events took place.
The newer actors had some brilliant moments as well as some of the directed scenes in the motel room and the drive through Utah. Other scenese seemed like they were put together so they could move on to the next scene - but they were still technically sound and crisp. In general, the love of making movies came through this one (especially the dialogue).
Again, a nice first movie that I believe shows the director possesses some talent to create even better films.
Comment on the Isthmus movie reviews, write one yourself, discuss upcoming flicks, recent DVDs, and other realms in the world of cinema.
