Do Not Give Cameras to Little Rich Boys
I just saw this at a friend's screening of the no-name indie stuff she's collected over the years. This is akin to another disaster at that screening called "Metamorphosis" (believe me, the writer never read the Kafka). In any case, it is the sum total of a rich kid with a lot of money and a camera. It's a hobby. An experiment. This is not serious film-making. It's just a proof of concept reel. The story came from, if I'm right, and I may not be...the guy's brother? Come on. The film stock cost more than the cash it would have taken to option some poor guy's GOOD short story. Anyway, what a wreck.
Go buy a winery with your trust fund and leave the industry alone. There is no heart here.
