After some extremely unfulfilling chinese buffet (never again), I decided to check this movie out instead of hang out in the lobby and talk to people.
I've had a new episode of The Wire on demand since monday but haven't had a free hour to watch it, so my guage for whether a movie is good or bad has now become whether or not i think about how I could be watching that episode of the Wire right now... if I spend my time wishing I was at home instead of the theater, your movie has problems.
This movie has problems.
It's kind of a Donnie Darko rip-off in that some stuff happens then over a perioud of time weird things happen to some people that lead them to eventually all connect at the very end in an explanation of what happened right at the beginning. The problem is that all of the characters aren't defined or developed or fleshed out at all, so you end up watching these people that you don't care about do things that you don't care about to come to a conclusion that you don't care about. Couple that with crappy looking DV photography (which, sorry, I personally don't like. I find that a movie has to work twice as hard to win me over if it's gonna look that way) and a 25-minute short and you get two hours that could've been spent watching that episode of The Wire twice instead. sigh...
