Everything the principal actors say was uttered, in a crisis, by a real person, although the sometimes frantic chatter has been edited for clarity by authors Robert Berger, Patrick Daniels and Irving Gregory.
You probably don't want to see this gripping 3-D adaptation of an unusual and acclaimed 1999 off-Broadway production just before your next plane trip.
Almost unbearably gripping.
The hybrid feel, a mix of live TV and stage play, seems appropriate to a work that inherently rests on a blend of the immediate and the canned.
The film's production is both realistic and avant garde.
The performances are universally pitched at a to-the-rafters level that comes off poorly on camera, while the stereoscopic photography is more distracting than immersive ...
... the filmmakers do get at something really terrifying, particularly in their second scene -- the moment when small talk segues into a realization that one might not survive the day. Gimmicky 3D or not, that's no small feat.
Charlie Victor Romeo is worth seeking out, as a thought-provoking, original, form-breaking film is a rare thing.
Something about hearing the voices of individuals seconds before they die is very reflective and makes you look closely on your own life.
The airline industry should be thankful that Charlie Victor Romeo will likely never be seen by anyone besides the art house crowd. Were the documentary to somehow become popular, it could do to air travel what Jaws did to beach-going.
Charlie Victor Romeo is rooted in fear and panic, but it's also a deeply empathetic film.
It's a fascinating experiment that doesn't quite translate to the big screen.
