Movie Info

Sybil Temtchine (Ten Benny, Passion of Ayn Rand) stars as a young woman who wakes up at dawn on the handprints and footprints of the famed Chinese Theatre in Hollywood with no idea who she or how she got there. Upon awakening, she wonders if she isn't, in fact, lost in a dream. And perhaps she is. Regardless of whether she is dreaming or wide awake, Our Gal sets off on her journey, from one person to the next, one famous locale after the other. Among the Hollywood fringe denizens with whom she comes into contact are a pair of tour guides (Charley Rossman, John Brickner), two super hero impersonators (Catherine Bruhier, Riley Weston), a Scientology auditor (Joe Roseto), and a memorabilia shop owner (R.J. Cantu). She also finds herself disquietingly followed by a Stranger (Kirk Bovill) who may be real or a figment of her unsteady imagination. Although her feet only fleetingly leave Hollywood Boulevard, by sundown Our Gal will piece together the revelatory truth about her existence and the reason for her awakening, forcing her to make choices that will literally result in either her life... or death. In their heart-breaking portrayals of two veterans of the boulevard and all it represents, FOOTPRINTS marks the return to the big screen of The Searchers' Pippa Scott and H. M. Wynant (The Twilight Zone, Sam Fuller's Run of the Arrow, Budd Boetticher's Decision at Sundown). -- (c) Paladin

Critic Reviews for Footprints

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (8)

It's original and poetic, and if you see it you will probably remember scenes from it a year from now, because it's not really like anything else.

"Footprints" looks like a Jim Jarmusch film set inside an Edward Hopper painting.

Ambitious if airlessly microcosmic.

Top Critic

The script's so incoherent and the acting so amateurish that it makes the worst old-time Hollywood B-flick seem like "Citizen Kane."

New York Post
Top Critic

This often risible head-scratcher never cracks the surface of its muddled ambitions, largely wasting its iconic settings on a series of motley interactions, Tinseltown trivia and self-conscious philosophizing.

Top Critic

From its "once upon a time" beginning to the anticlimactic end, "Footprints" remains fatally lodged in La-La Land.
