Indie worthy of watching
2 January 2018 | by woloszynnSee all my reviews

For a small budget indie movie, I thought it was great! Writing, direction, editing, cinematography and sound were fantastic. As someone else said, the production quality is superb, surprisingly so. Even for an indie movie, the effort in these categories rivaled major studio big budget pictures. The actors who played "Margot Peer" and "Herbert Schumacher" were the clear winners of this film. The movie really picks up around the middle-ish when Herbert shows up as he is the center of this particular universe and all the side stories start coming together. Picking a few things out, the soundtrack could have used a few extra bars, and a couple of re-shoots would have been beneficial to help out some of the dialog. All in all, It's an interesting movie and certainly worth the time to watch. For first time writer/director Lisa Mikitarian, "Bravo"! (BTW...love the rat !)
