Movie Reviews

Not quite Five, but definitely higher than Four Stars
D S H | Upstate New York, United States | 07/21/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Although The Photographer has received many poor ratings and reviews (especially at such places as IMDb), this film is a true gem. In order to appreciate this film to its full potential, one must first open his/her mind. Beginning this story with the expectation of a wealthily produced Hollywood film will only set someone up for disappointment.

As for a small budget, less known film; The Photographer is one of, if not, the best. Granted the story is a bit far-fetched, along with a few characters, the film itself portrays the story excellently. This is a film where there are only a few actors, but only a few are needed to portray what is intended.

The Serendipity Factor: This film includes a few, subtle relations to itself which I call The Serendipity Factor. During the film there are times when things are set up to relate to one another and to give the viewer that little tinkling feeling when knowing that they've 'figured something out' or that they know a bit more than the characters in the film. However 'immature' these things may be in some films, Jeremy Stein does an excellent job of incorporately only a few, subtle ones that give the story an extra punch.

Filming location and lighting do a great job influencing the dark light under which this story is told. Camera movements add to a viewers continuous pondering as to what exactly is going on or what will next happen.

Overall the actors do a great job, namely Reg Rogers who plays the main character Max Martin. This is definitely a great film to watch on a weekend when you're feeling independent and want to boost your own morale a few points."

"Very different and interesting movie that makes you think about what unseen forces are directing our lives. More than a 4, almost a 5!"
