Dialogue
If 2003’s The Room was a horror movie, this would be its spin-off. It’s unintentionally funny. It has the kind of innocence that puts a smile on your face. The budget is nonexistent. Shots are split in the midst of fascinating bits of dialogue, the camera zooms for no reason, and the subjects are framed randomly. I’ve seen many no-budget films, I’ve seen many kinos, but this is something else.
The thing that sold me was the cohesion between the two leads, who are a real-life couple. Their chemistry is obvious. Their vibe is contagious. No budget, sure, but considerable production value. There’s a lot of sight-seeing, a nice car, a nice house, and then, undeniably, there’s Karolina Morrongiello. She’s easy on the eye and her man knows it.
The dialogue is robotic. The exposition is thorough, though. I knew, at some point, that this story would darken, and I didn’t want anyone to die. It’s kind of crazy how much was accomplished, here, with such a small cast and crew. See this movie, if only for its effervescence. Sure, there’s mansplaining, sure, you’ve seen The Blair Witch Project, but you haven’t seen a movie quite like this one.
