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
Compare this with other films about being a teen, and few match this level of happy, resourceful creativity and unforced diversity.
I just finished watching the movie on sundance channel and found it surprisingly good for a low budget movie. It had some good original music from the cast. If you want to watch something more original than hollywood's constant unoriginal stories than this is one for you. Thank god for channels like sundance that try to be original in content and quality.
Smart and real, full of fantastic songs that (mostly) feel less from a musical, and more from a Magnetic Fields or They Might Be Giants album. Director Richard Wong also proves the age-old fact that you don't need a huge budget to make your movie look professional...you just need to know how to SHOOT a goddamn scene. Just lovely.
