I wanted to watch this movie b/c I am a filmmaker so I was very excited to watch an undiscovered little indie gem.
Needless to say I was very disappointed. While the cinematography was excellent the film itself was very boring.
The sound was kind of bad too. They would often speak so softly that I couldn't hear them and then the very next scene would have ridiculously loud montage music. The music was very good and went with the film, however, it was so loud that I kept having to change the volume while watching it.
The main problem with the film was the writing. I did not care about the main character or a majority of the characters in the film. It's hard to get into a film when you don't care for the characters. "Warren" was kind of a jerk + he wasn't good looking enough to act this way and get away with it. I couldn't imagine a world where his "love interest" would even be the slightest bit interested in a below average looking guy with nothing to offer who was this unlikable.
For the entire movie I just kept waiting for something to happen, and eventually it did. It ended. I just didn't care about the main characters. It feels like it was written by a 25 year old that thought he was a lot smarter than he actually is. The only redeeming quality about his film is the shots of the beautiful city it was shot in, Chicago.
Other than that, nada. I have no idea why this film had "stars" attached to it. Unless they got paid a ton, there was no reason for anyone to read this script and think "Wow, this is something I need to be in!"
