It’s as if Anders knew his leads’ strength in improvisation and wildly encouraged/forced them to never leave a moment of silence between the three, and to just keep speaking over each other until he said cut.
The visual effects were being sold as something that could only be properly enjoyed by watching it in the theater, however, for the most part, I was never really in awe or stimulated to such great heights.
Catching a young talented director on the rise is pretty fun. It's like knowing that band that everyone owns something from before they ever made it big. Roseville, Minnesota native Conor Holt is that director that everyone will know of eventually but as of now I get to act super cool like I've discovered something. I was happy to be privy to Holt's directorial debut, "A Better Life", at the 2013 Twin Cities Film Festival where I quickly found out that I was not the only one who thought highly of the director and his project that day.
I have access to the full 12-minute feature of "A Better Life" and I consider myself lucky to be able to post it on my site for your viewing pleasure. Please check out what Holt was able to do with just a $1500 grant and you can also check out my review of his film with this link.
Director Timothy Torabpour and his brother screenwriter Hamid Torabpour have clearly done the research from all angles of the consequences of suicide, and it spills out into “To Say Goodbye” with with a powerful dramatic weight.
I understand “Wild Canaries” is supposed to be a very frollicking New Yorky comedy, but I would have rather just pinched myself over and over and over than watch this movie, and it would have been a less painful experience.
