Movie Reviews

Surprisingly Sincere
Sean D. Santiago | 11/24/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I saw an early cut of this film and was presently surprised with its sincerity. What begins as a rather typical night-in-the-life of some sex obsessed teens, quickly turns into an oftentimes touching exploration of all aspects of love. You have the innocent crush, the ravenous lust, unrequited adoration, and even cross-generational friendship.
By the end of the film I was hoping it would keep going. A definite find for the independently-minded film viewer."
All's well that ends well
Theo Armour | San Francisco & Paris | 01/23/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've seen a pre-release screening of Palo Alto. Films with endings that have a twist to them are among my favorites. Well, Palo Alto has four twisty endings. So it's really a good value! And it's a swell film too..."
Roap Trip of Self-Discovery
The Movie Man | Maywood, New Jersey USA | 02/28/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Palo Alto, CA" focuses on four college freshmen (Ben Savage, Johnny Lewis, Justin Mentell, Aaron Ashmore) who bite off more than they can chew when they come home for Thanksgiving break. Tom Arnold is on board as a school bus driver and mentor. What begins as a typical horny guys/coming-of-age flick turns out to be much more. Each of the initially shallow characters develops in depth as their individual stories unfold. The movie is many things: buddy film, comedy, romance, and drama. The screenplay by Tony Vallone is clever and touching, taking pains to make the four guys real folks rather than mere deliverers of wisecracking repartee. The picture's modest budget and lack of name stars gives it the look and feel of an indie, and also adds credibility to the story. The film proves that a comedy featuring young men need not take the low road of obvious yucks and tired, overused situations to milk laughs. The humor here derives from how the guys react to unexpected circumstances, growing up a bit along the way."
Very enjoyable

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The story and characters have a lot of depth, both intellectually and emotionally.

The pacing is excellent with a strong, feel-good finish.

Overall, a very good, very enjoyable movie.
