whoever recomended this to me owes me an apology. a big one too. Granted, None of the movies in this slot really appealed to me and along with a recomendation the other reasons why I picked this were that it was at the Alamo and it was only 66 minutes long but... damn it.
This movie is about teens who have sex or something. It's a lot like Kids except for Chloe Sevigny's not in it and it sucks ass. I think the biggest reason for why it sucks is lack of script. It's very obvious that most of the dialogue was "improvised" (either that or having every actor wait for like 5 seconds before every line just to "act" as if he's desperately thinking of what to say next was just a piece of genius direction) and goes absolutely nowhere; painful to sit through in every scene. The WGA should send this movie to every producer in Hollywood with a note saying "without us, this is what you get."
It's not shot well, it's not cut well, lord knows it's not acted well, and as far as I know it's not written at all so... it was pretty painful for me to sit through. What made it worse was like 2 guys in the back of the theater who laughed way too long and hard about everything. I think it was the actors back there, marvelling at the genius of lines like "hey, I'm drunk," and "You know what I hate? the clit."
I'm not sure if this was the wost movie of the fest for me... I'd say so but it was only half as long as The Lost...
