Here, getting there is all the fun, and this flick is stocked with laughs galore, all at the expense of the most clueless loser since Napoleon Dynamite.

Amusing (and, at 72 minutes, in and out of there fast), with a diabolically dweeby performance by Melik Malkasian.

For people who know their cinema, I recommend FILM GEEK not just as a comedy, but a cautionary tale as well.

Detailed in its affectionate mockery, the film captures the social isolation that befalls guys like Scotty but understates their own complicity on it.
February 24, 2006
Westby's escapist fantasy's happy ending falls short of a meaningful message in spite of a rib-tickling individual effort by lead Melik Malkasian.
| Original Score: 6/10

On its own terms and for that small audience it owns, the film delivers.

Film Geek is a delightful, sad, witty, scorchingly satirical film about movie buffs.

As played by Melik Malkasian with Pee-Wee Herman-y chirpiness, you feel for him as you would any out-of-it sibling who seems beyond help.

Westby's sympathy for the Scottys of the world is evident, but like them he doesn't always know how to put his best face forward.

The film looks like it cost 10 cents, but a lot of the jokes are gold. Hollywood, take notice of writer-director James Westby.

The film's press notes proudly observe that both Westby and Quentin Tarantino spent time soaking up celluloid while working at video stores. Which means they have exactly one thing in common.

Film Geek has a likable premise and a pleasantly homemade indie feel. Unfortunately, its lead character is so irritating you want to get away from him.

Westby never provides a reason you should pay to spend 70 minutes with Scotty, but he offers at least a dozen compelling ones not to.
January 21, 2006
It's through Scotty's "success" that writer-director James Westby is able to validate his own love for movies.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Westby makes excellent use of Portland locations and cinematic references to make Film Geek a mostly spot-on, sometimes hilarious character study.
