Style over substance
You can see what they were trying to do, but this film is ultimately not satisfying. Not exactly terrible, but not good. A definite 5/10.
It meanders through a pretty dull, and over-used storyline using all the photography and dialogue tricks it can muster to make it seem more than the sum of its parts – but ultimately fails.
The dialogue is of the “quick fire” variety that is often seen as the sign of a good script, but here the dialogue is almost pure filler. It doesn’t build the characters, it doesn’t add anything to the story. It just fills the time. (budget-Tarantino style, and I do not use that as a compliment – for me he’s the pinnacle of style-over substance film-making)
The much-vaunted, very long tracking shot half way through is “creepy” because it is shot as a “creature POV”, which turns out to be a ruse as it is simply intended as an “artistic cinematographic shot” to tie together locations. So that’s another bit of screen-time wasted. The lighting was certainly moody though, so some credit is due for the basics.
The ending when it finally came was very much a “who cares” moment for me. I didn’t care about the characters, or what happened to them, or the rest of their stupid town.
Ultimately, this is yet another of those films that leaves too much to the imagination, and is a poorer storytelling experience for it.
Good acting though, I thought.
Waste of time.
The Vast of Night is very limited and lifeless, a film school project.
The initial basis that these teens have these integral jobs and everybody knows and relies on them, while all the adults must go watch the local school basketball game, doesn’t fly. Also that these two callers listen to the station every night just waiting to tell their story to some kid, meh. It isn’t creative, it’s entirely unconvincing and leads nowhere. Poor from start to finish really.
