Low key…very, very low key
This move moves lethargically, like a turtle on Thorazine. It is best described as a thinking man’s western, just, in this case, it’s a thinking woman…or rather, a girl. A girl who doesn’t watch westerns, and prefers Glee. It does have some nice cinematography though, and we see Arizona landscape in all its splendor. Even the sets are quite ok for a low budget western. And now the bad… the story is of revenge, revenge at the stray viewer who stumbles upon it on the Prime…The creators were aware of the western form and canons, but were not able to substantiate it, or infuse any genuine soul in this project. Oh, and did I mention that, it is lacking energy until the very end, when it is released in a somewhat farcical way. Acting is largely amateurish, making it annoying at times. The sound follows closely. I would give it 3 stars were it not for the fake upvoting, so, for the sake of fairness, 2/10.
It starts with all the wonderful clichés. A person walks into a saloon, face, and other body parts obscured, and talks to the barkeep-voice obscured, too. It’s revealed a minute or so later: it’s a woman. No duh. The body frame said that much. Then a man walks into the saloon, face also obscured as if both these people warrant such a thing in the beginning of a film with actors/characters no one really has ever heard of or established storywise; especially since it’s the beginning of the film.
As with so many low budget films: the composition plays over much of the dialogue and turning up the volume doesn’t really help. And, if it doesn’t have subtitles and you can’t read lips…well…kind of makes you want to skip those parts or stop watching all together. The film is setup in story form by way of narration (cliché) where a piano player is telling a story to a woman on a stage; think she’s a prostitute, or something…don’t really remember. Then in narration over a story told in a sort of flashback it then goes into another flashback telling about the main character and her friend, how they met, who they are to each other, explaining the bad guys etc., and it’s all just a really big mess of storytelling. One of the most boring tales of revenge.
Personally, I felt the photography and set design was fine. The acting was mildly okay, not the worst I’ve seen but nothing too special, either. The beginning kind of paints the female lead as a ‘bad girl’ type but with the implication that she once was a ‘good girl’. I didn’t see that connection. She was never shown as being a sweet innocent girl who then was turned into a bad girl by the things that she went through in the flashback scenes. She was shown as a strong-willed person who stood up for those she felt was being wronged by others; which is good but there’s nothing innocent about that, in my opinion.
I felt that the worst thing about the film was the composition. Not that it was awful but for the mere fact it drowns out the dialogue. 40 minutes in the characters Jake (Jason Grasl) and Joe (Abby Eiland) are laying down outside next to a fire having a talk after sex and it’s difficult to make out the conversation based on the fact the composition is so loud. Another problem with the composition: it plays through 99% of the entire film and the in between moving-along scenes the composition is quieter but in the scenes where the dialogue is important it’s difficult to hear anything but the composition.
Overall, it’s not the worst Western I’ve ever scene but it is the most boring and I’m one of the few people who disliked “High Noon” (1952) based on the fact that I found it boring. Also, you notice how some films explain what’s going to or did happen before or after a scene? Not this movie. No, for the first time (to my recollection) — and I’ve seen thousands of films — this film explains the plot to the viewer consistently every 10-15 minutes until the very end. The opening credits were pretty good, though. That’s something.
