creative within restraints
For a film that obviously didn't have much money, I was extremely delighted. Some of the performances were good, some were great, and a few were mediocre, but the writing was always interesting. At first I felt like it was getting repetitive in the dialog (a lot of meandering and hesitant conversations), but as the film progressed it felt more and more like real conversations. I was very impressed at what could be accomplished within one setting, and I thought the way the subject matter was approached was very realistic. My only complaint was that it felt repetitive after a while in that every scenario was one man and one woman, and they were all about romance and/or sex. I guess that's just a personal preference, but I would have liked to see a change in the subject matter and character relationships. Regardless, this film is a case-in-point example of how acting, writing, directing, etc. is what really counts, not budget.
