Small in scope but smart in the way it deals with how cosy communities react when something rotten surfaces in their world.
Good but perhaps not good enough, "Meskada" can be thought of as solid letter-grade-B work.
Efforts are muddled and the story incomplete, making the feature limp along, in search of something substantial and focused to lean against. While initially moody and raw, the film quickly falls apart.
It might be fair to investigate if "Josh Sternfeld" is a programming language, not a director.
The script needs a map -- or a world atlas, for that matter -- because it has no clue where it's going or how to get there.
Completely inauthentic at almost every level.
Meskada is another direct-to-video feature I knew nothing about ahead of time. I choose it because the story sounded interesting and I love the cast. In these cases, the film is usually hit or miss, with no in-between. In the case of Meskada, it's definitely a hit! The story follows a local detective, investigating the death of a child, during a home invasion. What makes Meskada different from the rest is that 15 minutes into the film, you know who did it and why, it's not a mystery. Nick Stahl who I usually don't like and Jonathan Tucker who I've always liked are both fantastic in this film. It's roles that neither is really used to playing and both stepped up to the challenge. The story wasn't all that strong, but the acting was, and what I really liked about this film is how it came at a common story in an unconventional way. It's defiantly worth checking out!
