Flannel Pajamas

What I enjoyed about this film was how natural it all felt.  I felt like I was a fly on the wall and this was a documentary of someone’s life.  The film had such an intimacy to it.  The performances and dialogue was so natural that it never for a moment felt forced or contrived.  The film reminded me of the films of John Cassavetes.  The director of the film Jeff Lipsky was on hand to introduce the film and to answer questions afterward.  He said the entire film was shot in 30 days at a cost of $470,000 and on actual FILM!  This film is all the more impressive knowing how much was accomplished with so little.  What I also admire about this film is how rich and complicated the characters are.  I also like how the film balances them out in terms of their relationship.  There is not a “bad guy” per say in the story.  Both the man and the woman make mistakes and contribute to the relationship’s demise.  They are both at fault in equal measure and you find yourself really caring about them and wanting them to make it.  The film charted many sad truths about relationships and life in general.  It is all painful and complicated yet beautiful at the same time.  Watch the trailer and find out more at the Official Website.

  1. You do know that Marc Forster is the director of the new Bond seeuql?  A very, very, very interesting choice.  Let’s just hope the Brocoli’s are dedicated to this new era of Bond in more than a superficial way.
