| A fine film in the Bergman/Fellini tradition.
Mother Ghost screened at the Long Beach International Film Festival and enjoyed a strong, positive audience response. Everyone laughed at the humor that sprung naturally from the plot and characters, and either cried outright or fought back tears at the climax. Mark Thompson's performance is reminiscent of George Clooney in strength, good looks and humor. In addition, Kevin Pollack pulled off the best rendition of a screen psychiatrist one could ever hope for; pure genius!

This film is a genuine surprise in its remarkable use of non-traditional structure. Although it is linear, it is not really three acts; it is a powerful emotional journey in one act, almost like a play. The director, Rich Thorne, and lead actors Mark Thompson (of Mark & Brian fame) and Kevin Pollack pulled out some wonderful surprises for such a simple story: a man struggles to deal with grief after losing his mother. Using creative staging, situations and humor, the story propels an otherwise mundane premise into a real treat for the senses. Fans of either Bergman, Fellini or Hitchcock (yes, they can go together!) will definitely appreciate this fine film.
