News & Interviews for Before I Disappear
Critic Reviews for Before I Disappear
"Before I Disappear" would be a better movie if would-be triple-threat talent Shawn Christensen got out of his own way.
Before I Disappear is ultimately hampered not by a messy plot but by bland characters who, for the most part, don't so much talk to each other as they monologue at each other.
It has the unfortunate taste of something lean that's been plumped up with empty calories.
"Before I Disappear" wears its big, aching heart on its sleeve with a sincerity so unwavering that it's borderline goofy. And in a film about a burnout bonding with a cute kid, that lack of self-awareness proves critical.
Throughout the movie, you have the feeling of being dragged along on an impromptu journey by a filmmaker who is traveling without the benefit of a GPS device.
Audience Reviews for Before I Disappear
Despite the critics' reviews, Before I Disappear was a pleasant and moving film unlike my expectations. It's beautifully shot, well acted, and has a pretty good soundtrack. Sure the slow motion sequences were unnecessarily long but the story is deeply emotional and tags you along until the very end in the hopes that the protagonist can heal his wounds and make peace with his existence. Definitely worth the watch.
This is an excellent indie film, a family drama working its way though the two characters - sister and brother - via their own divergent demons through the sisters 11 year old gifted insightful daughter and his niece. She tempers his self-destructive seesaw as it slowly turns into a redemption. It us also a good look at the chaotic nightlife world these days which plays like the blur it is. The bottom line is a sobering look at love and what it can do - IF you can just let it. Remember "Chestnut" not once, but twice, second time bliss.
Excellent. This is such an awesome film. It's heartbreaking, dark, hilarious, and inspiring, all at once. I love Before I Disappear.
