Movie Reviews

Time travel, love and a few hidden performances
Steve Kuehl | Ben Lomond, CA | 01/25/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This film did not get any distribution originally, but I have a feeling Jay's performance in Tropic Thunder helped this get a re-release this week. Filmed in Canada with loads of indie production companies backing them, the crew/cast managed to make a decent indie about trying to help the one you love, even whilst prostituting yourself, being strung out and homeless.

Granted, it is difficult to feel anything for our main character played by Jay, as he is a drug dealing, part-time prostitute who gets high all day. Yet he still has managed to find a diamond in the girl played adequatley by Sarah Lind. Amongst their tragedies, he manages to find a time traveling chair that he uses to try and right the wrongs in his love's earlier life. Yes, there are an incredible amount of gaping plot holes (counted roughly 20 different time line missteps) and bad scenes (an arresting officer throws two drug dealers in the back of his car with no cuffs to save time), but I realized this was about the love story and not the logistics.

The DVD has a small production featurette, which did contain a quick brief with the lady who was supervising the time line issues - she stated she was just having fun, so I would venture to say the continuity issues were not on the front burner. The DVD cover art talks about all the other films Jay has done/is doing so it is good to see some of his other work getting some press. If it were rated it would be R for language and drugs, and I would give it 3.5 stars for the heart that went into making it. Having just reviewed this and Holly, the whole ambiguous ending theme wore on me a little. I would say give it a try though."
