Critic Reviews for Quality of Life (Against The Wall)
Although the filmmakers have succeeded in portraying a raw slice of street culture, they have also made something that seems unnecessarily stiff, foisting a structural conceit onto something that by its very nature is free-form and uncontainable.
Pic's cliched underlying story of restless youth plays as too naive for an older audience and too provocative for teens.
It's a setup as old as the hills, but the unvarnished simplicity with which first-time director Benjamin Morgan rolls it out makes the tale worth another go-round.
A minor, modest indie about two young graffiti artists forced to choose between creative marginalization and the seductions of the marketplace.
Morgan, who co-wrote with Burnam, elicits authentic performances from his two lead actors and from Mackenzie Firgens as Curtis' single-mom girlfriend.
Audience Reviews for Quality of Life (Against The Wall)
Some of the acting is a bit shabby but its an Awesome Look into the world of a Graffiti artist! (This is about as close as it gets!)
This film is directed by my college screenwriting professor. This film is really good for such a low-budget independent film. I really enjoyed the stationary camera shot, and there was some really great cinematography. The characters were well written and I think that the end is superb! I really loved the last scene and the last shot of the film. I am not just saying this because this is my professor's film, but because I truly enjoyed it and think that it should be seen by anyone who like independent film, or simply good film in general.
