Movie Reviews

Poor Quality DVD - No Extras, No Chapters ! Bad Acting !
turtlex | PA USA | 08/01/2001
(1 out of 5 stars)

"There are several reviews listed below that speak to each end of the review spectrum regarding this film (ie - they loved it or they hated it ). They were mostly written for the VHS version of this film.Please see my comment # 8 as to why this is important.My personal appraisal : Not very good.1. Characters who "act" with their clothing are usually very uninteresting ( ie. she's got a leather jacket on, she must be a "rebel" )2. I was bored silly.3. Taken with a grain of salt, this could have been a great comedy along the lines of "Showgirls" ( ie. So Bad, It's Good ).4. The script was lacking...big time.5. The production values looked right on - it's an independent film but they didn't spare the film...however, the extraneous shots of absolutely nothing wear on the pacing.6. Oh, I'm sorry, there was no pacing. The plot clunks !7. There's a whole lot of NOTHING going on here. 8. MOST IMPORTANTLY - This is a play it or don't play it DVD. There are no CHAPTERS ! You cannot skip around without "fast forwarding" or "rewinding". A major flaw in this very exciting age of DVD special features. So...if you do buy this DVD, don't be dropping that remote, if you accidently hit stop, you're done!I definitely cannot recommend this DVD. There are a whole lot of better films out there - more worthy of your time and money. If this is the genre you're looking for ( Lesbian Themed Independent Films ) then check out "Better Than Chocolate", "It's In The Water", "Show Me Love", "All Over Me" or "Bound."Best Regards, turtlex"
Really out of Season

"True, the main characters are pretty women. True, they do have an intimate scene (very late into the film) but the story to that takes awhile to get itself going, much akin to pulling teeth. The plot is centered around Mickey, a former photographer whose life has been without much direction. The movie starts off with a phone call that ultimately sends Mickey on a mission to take care of her dying uncle who lives in a picturesque little beach town called Cape May.Our constantly smoking, leather clad heroine is introduced to a few of the town's inhabitants along the way : Shelly--the mousy hetero owner of the diner who views Mickey as an "interloper"Roberta--Mickey's eventual love interest, an out lesbian cook who works at Shelly's diner, and is determined not to be seduced by Mickey's charms.The Uncle--who is dying from some un-named disease, who serves as the important link between Roberta and Mickey. The movie slows down to a crawl several times, mostly when the uncle's condition worsens and he is caught in violent coughing fits that Mickey helplessly witnesses. There are some redeeming sequences in the film however; when Mickey's 4 friends come to visit, the picture taking sequence with the uncle and Roberta, and the uncle's subtle attempts to matchmake his niece with Roberta, so some fuzzy points can be awarded here.Overall--this is a film that could have been much better if the other characters in the plot had more time to develop themselves instead of becoming incidental. Rent this film if you must but if you want a better In-Search-of-Self-and-Love film, try "It's in the Water" (also available by Amazon) and you'll see the difference."
Dreamy lesbian sleeper

"This often overlooked film is a must-see for anyone interested in a realistic love story between women. The film has a lazy, sleepy feel to it that matches the lead character's personna as well as the town it was filmed in (Cape May, NJ, USA).No one sleeps with men, a welcome relief from the gaggle of other films on the market that seem to refuse to acknowledge the idea that many people are Kinsey 6's.An excellent story, loveable, honest characters, beautiful scenery. An all-around great indie film!"
Out of Season Has Never Been More In
turtlex | 03/20/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an amazing cinematic accomplishment for first time feature Director Jeanette L. Buck. Out of Season is both poignant and compelling with an honesty rarely seen in film performances. Especially in the lesbian genre.Micki is a bit of a wanderer. She never stays in one place too long. Never with a woman much longer. Now family and maybe fate brings her to East Coast Cape May, NJ to nurse her ailing Uncle Charlie. She doesn't know if "she's searching for something or running from it."Quickly this lack of direction is challenged by a local lesbian recluse/short order cook Roberta. As much as you want them together, you can't help but surrender--savor every moment they clash. Sexual tension times a hundred--sweet connection to the moon and back.What makes this film such a reviving feature is that it exudes the primitive nature of falling in love, being vulnerable, and realizing who you are. No fancy tricks with editing or explosive "Run Lola Run" cinematography. Just a statement from the heart, from the soul.In the moment.I've seen Out of Season and put it at the top of my list of nearly any lesbian film prior. Get misplaced!"
