Movie Reviews

Hard Hitting and Realistic
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This isn't the usual meet-cute love story, nor the usual sentimentalized tale of doomed love or romantic obsession. One man, one woman: It's the same old setup with a whole different method to its madness.John Vincent is an indifferent schooltaecher with a classroom of indifferent students. He moonlights as a singer songwriter of questionable talent and undaunted optimism. Even when his wife dumps him, John Vincentis unbowed. He takes up with Lisa and pours all of his dreams into his new crucuble - until the relationship turns sour, and he begins to pour all of his nightmares into it instead. He's losing his grip. And we're there, up close, for it all. Wit single minded intensity that rivals Vincent's the filmamkers have burned anything that might be irrelevant off of the screen. What's left is a white-hot passion spinning out of control."

"MISTER VINCENT is a powerful piece of writing from director Robert Celestino delivered by Lisa LoCicero and Frank John Hughes brave and sexy performances and an emotionally charged black and white camera. Celestino's dramatic realism, attention to detail and his examination of the particular culture of the everyday people of Yonkers, a small town just outside of New York City, makes MISTER VINCENT a film that stands up to and grows from repeated viewings. This is among the best movies to come out of the independent film movement, a real piece of movie making, something seen rarely today and so all the more shocking for it. Get your hands on this picture!"
Mr. Vincent pack emotional Punch

"When I first saw Mr. Vincent I was blown away. How could an indie movie shot in New York for peanuts be so emotionally draining that I needed a jack and coke just to return to my normal pace. Mr. Vincent is one of the best acted indie films I have ever seen, and I trust me, I have seen many. Director Bob Celestino works with actors in a way that most indie filmmakers don't understand. Bob Celestino just may be New York's best kept secret."
Indie filmmaking at its best

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Sharp little film about obsessive love and its consequences. No one is caught "acting" here, and that is the movie's greatest strength, it has the feel of real life. There is enough angst to emulate any Ingmar Bergman movie, but every situation rings overwhelmingly true. The abrupt ending disappoints, as some loose ends remain, but overall, this is a solid independent effort and it is highly recommended. The film transfer is fair, picture is hazy but acceptable."
