Poorly Marketed Film

Unfortunately, in today's society, much of what is or isn't seen isbased upon marketing. First, what can be marketed is shown, andsecondly, the marketing we attach ourselves to, we view. I had thegreat fortune of watching a film who's marketing did not appeal to me.Because of the vast number of films that exist that I have yet to see,this is not always the easiest exception to make. Needless to say I wasstunned, this film was neither how it was marketed or what I expected.You must walk into this film knowing that this is a message-orientedindependent film with the goal being to incite, yes incite, socialchange and a cultural shift from the apathetic malaise affectingtoday's youth. This message is wrapped within a rather bland romanticstory and makes the mistake of trying to balance a few too many genres.The many homages to past films are interesting and at least let youknow that Josh knows not only what has occurred, but how to build onit. The film's message is not one that you haven't heard, but one whichis periodically important to remind yourself of, lest you fall into themalaise which so frequently plagues our society. The film pays itsrespects to students who have spoken out and fought for their rights,who have fought for their own forms of what is just. The main item Iwas able to take away from this film was promise. The film shows afilmmaker with great ability. Much like watching a film like Duel, HardEight, or Bottle Rocket. Your not seeing a filmmaker hitting on allcylinders. But you are seeing the birth of a filmmaker, who when hereaches that point, it'll be something special. This film is notextraordinary. But it's good. It's worth your time, and inspires greatconfidence in the potential of Josh Stolberg and I'm excited to seewhere he goes and what he says, because it's a message that's worthlistening to. -Andrew
