It's not so much that it's a low budget production, because those sometimes make for reasonably haunting movies, i.e.: The Innkeepers, Blair Witch Project. Where this film is lacking is direction and ability of the actors to actually act. Perhaps it's not so much their fault as the director's though. I've seen the two headliners do far better in other films; perhaps the blame lies with the script, for the characters, all of them, are ridiculously two-dimensional, almost cartoonish.About thirty minutes into the film, you've basically seen the full gamut of J. Michael Trautmann's expressions, the one, that is. You begin to think you are watching a film project from a high school where a 14 year old was given a grant to produce his dream film. Towards the end, if you've made it that far, you wonder how a character can get one leg lightly maimed yet has to drag themselves as if their back was broken. You wonder why another character recounts physical descriptions of others that clearly do not match the actors who played them. Most of all you will wonder why you didn't quit watching after the first half hour. The highest marks go to the special effects and make-up crew, who did a first rate job here. It was the only surprise of the movie.

Matt Daemon did particularly well here too. The full circle nature of the love affair, the themes of identity loss and sugar daddy insecurity were played to top notes. There were only a few occasions where I would have had the actors mask voice and accent a bit better. Some of the scenes could have had more intensity and drawn out the conflict like with Scott being so betrayed during his surrogate mother's funeral. While I read between the lines the emotion there, I like to see it played out. This will be one movie I remember for ever. I also appreciated the fact that many of the stereotyped expectations were saved to the end. I loved the blur perspective and ambiguous sensory cues used to express the dazed state of Scott, his imagined performance number upon Liberace's death and the coverage of real life events over time had great continuity and thought. Bravo to directory and actors. Robe Lowe was excellent comic relief too.

(ca) wrote: If the...ehm...dialogue was improvised, the cast must have had the time of their lifes. If all the gibberish was scripted I don't feel that bad for them. Why didi they agreen to be in such a fuck of a movie. THe stop motion is indeed very nice for it's time. I do have some concerns about the costumed alligator and monitor lizard that are shown fighting. The most hillarious about this movie is that, it seams, that according to the writers what brought dinosaurs and prehistoric giant reptiles to extinction may have been cliffs and cavemen with rather tidy haircuts.
