Insomnia is a cold place...
I attended the sold out World Premiere showing of Neverlost at this
year's (2010) Fantasia International Film Festival - feels pretty neat
to be able to say I was one of the very first people to see a film ;
anyway, I'm derailing myself here...
For a film with a small budget, coming out of Guelph, Canada - I must
say I was very surprised by Neverlost. Picture quality was great and
for the most part, so was the acting. The story was interesting with a
couple of slower moments... the audio though had not yet been fully
mastered at the time of viewing (as per the director himself, who was
on hand with cast and crew for a Q&A following the film) but the only
real issue with the sound was that some things were a lot louder than
they should have been (which will be fixed by the time it hits
cinemas/DVD I'm sure) The basic story is of a man who's love life has
been dragged through the bushes backwards and is now the source of his
insomnia. Married but still pinning for the "one that got away", the
film quickly moves into bizare territory that leaves it's audience
split by two story arcs and unsure which ones is real and which is
dream. As the story unfolds, more and more plot is tied together and
twisted up again... although it is fairly predictable in parts.
It's really nice to see such good films coming out of Canada!
