Great story; terrible production
14 March 2008 | by Goober98See all my reviews

I saw this movie at 2008 SXSW film festival, and it has the best storyline and worst production of any of the movies that I saw during this festival. About the production - the camera was shaky, a lot of the shots are in-and-out of focus, and the sound was terrible. Many of the cars that drive by in the scenes are louder than the characters talking. About the story - we follow a traveling salesman while he is trying to sell investments into a product that he knows nothing about. The lead actor Jeff Clark does a marvelous job of evoking the audience's sympathy. The story is one of the most interesting and unique that I have seen in a narrative feature in a long time. As I watched the credits, I realized that the filmmaker Jake Mahaffy wore many different hats while making this film (writer, directer, camera) which explains why the production was so bad. I hope that he continues to make films because the production issues can be fixed with money; great stories are priceless.
