Critic Reviews for Colma: The Musical
It's not a great film, but we sure enjoyed it more than many bigger films that try harder to convince us they're great.
A winning amalgam of MySpace-ish self-involvement, digital video immediacy and 'Hey kids, let's put on a show' gumption.
Suburban teenage frustration: Didn't it always go down best with a salty side of Journey? Or the Smiths?
A little rough around the edges, this likable movie is filled with adolescent angst, youthful energy and hope.
The songs sound like they were recorded on a toy synthesizer in someone's basement, and neither of the two male leads can sing.
An itty-bitty movie with a great big heart, Colma: The Musical is about how we learn to give voice -- joyfully, honestly, loudly -- to the truest parts of ourselves.
Audience Reviews for Colma: The Musical
A sharp and seriously charming indie musical.
I happen to catch this musical on the Sundance channel and it was a delightful surprise. I, especially, enjoyed Mendoza's songs. The film's style is reminiscent of the french musicals, THE UMBRELLA'S OF CHERBOURG and LOVE SONGS. It almost falls apart during the climatic scene which takes place in a small regional theatre. However, the film redeems itself rather quickly. check it out!
Sounds really depressing and kind of like one of those "indie art" movie that won't make much sense. Pass- prolly.
