I have respect for indie filmmakers but this script needed a lot of tightening up before being shot. A lot of the dialog felt tight. I do not blame the actors it is obvious they did the best they could given the circumstances. More importantly Rachelle Dimaria's character lacked autonomy as a living breathing entity. It was painful to watch for the most par. It took thirty minutes to accomplish what should have been done in ten. A lot of it due to static expository dialog. <br/><br/>The most striking aspect of the film is the constant shakiness of the camera. I understand that filmmakers are capable of making creative choices but in this instance it is not serving the script in any useful manner and appears to be indicative of poor production rather than conscious choice. Secondly, it looks like they cut corners in the production sound and made poor choices in scene locations. This was made worse by the lack of coverage which created choppy cuts. This combined with muffled dialog I could just not watch this film. <br/><br/>I do not recommend this film except as an exercise of what not to do. The script was sloppy, the production was questionable. The premise is novel but the characterization, or lack of, had me reaching for something else.
