Not for the uptight; not for the squeamish. "World Full of Nothing" Writer-Director Jesse Pomeroy tackles a difficult challenge because the evildoer is behind the scenes and for the most part, inactive on screen. This could weaken an ordinary script. It's hard to keep the conflict and tension on the surface. However, Pomeroy and his cast do it well with the scary symbolism and the desperation from the POV of the predator as is revealed in panicky hand-held shots when he thinks his prey has disappeared. The questioning teen contemplating whether life is worth it may be the main character dealing with the internal conflicts; however, the real protagonist is the FBI decoy dealing with the external problem of justice. Her quest to save the girl from suicide becomes a compulsion not to be denied by her detail chief. Ironically, he is the one who most stands in the way of her valiant objective. The film carries the old unresolved dilemma of "to be or not to be" to the end. Even though Pomeroy takes us inside the shell-game he's created, the potent theme remains: The thin line separating salvation and ever-present predators, inside and out, goes on. Jesse Pomeroy has managed to pull exquisite acting detail out of his cast. Beautifully photographed and edited, "World Full of Nothing" powerfully and irreverently provides a story background for the saddest of tragedies that life can contain.
