A ROLLER COASTER OF ACTION, GAMES, GROWING UP FAST AND A TWIST
I was invited to view the primer of, `The Learning Curve'. I knew that this was a debut film for the cast and crew, so it seemed that anything was possible. Immediately at the start you are compelled into being part of the action. Walking through doors following the players. I found it easy to identify with the characters as they played the little scams to make a buck. The sensual chemistry between `Paul' played by Carmine Giovinazzo, and `Georgia' played by Monet Mazur flies off the screen in 3-D. As the game unrolls, a hidden unlucky twist occurs that seems to good to be true. When the new found lovers attempt their first real thought out scam, they meet up with a "Record King", Marshal, played by Vincent Ventresca, who we learn is just as much as a scam artist as they are. Marshal and his partner, York played by Steven Bauer, want to revolutionize the entertainment world in the capitol of entertainment, Los Angles. The only thing standing in the way is a small problem, the corruptible Los Angles zoning board. At this point in the movie the incredible music kicks in, the action heats up, and this young Bonnie and Clyde team get entwined, in a plot that goes the mile. The cinematography uses the light to paint the mood, the music holds the rhythm, and the characters draw you into how life at times can be right on the edge. Well worth the time spent. I recommend not waiting to see this movie later on video, SEE IT NOW!!
