Critic Reviews for Sun Don't Shine
Unspools like a Françoise Sagan novel: purposefully, enigmatically and with a raw emotional purity that makes its volatile central couple appear even more defenseless than they really are.
Writer-director Amy Seimetz's oddly sunny film noir is a classic tale of young lovers on the run, reminiscent in tone of the darkly comic moments in Terrence Malick's "Badlands."
[Audley's] richly textured debut is assured in every choice, from first frame to last.
Working wonders on a tight budget, Seimetz uses handheld cameras and tight compositions to create an air of claustrophobic intensity interspersed with moments of ragged beauty.
Seimetz hasn't quite figured out how to sustain long-form tension; by the time this modest microindie noir starts laying its cards on the table, your attention will have already folded.
Audience Reviews for Sun Don't Shine
'Sun Don't Shine'. Highly combustible characters and tension that escalates nicely. Amy Seimetz is a talented gal! Sound design rocks too.
A sullen and violent man and his jealous and manipulative girlfriend flee from cops in central Florida. Good performances and sporadic emotional outbursts can't save this tale of lovers on the run that covers familiar ground too slowly.
