It's a little rough around the edges, to be sure, but with such strong lead performances there is something irresistible in the film's audaciously straight-faced portrayal of such an unlikely relationship.
Neo Ned may be ludicrous on paper, but it has what fans of independent film are looking for -- atmosphere, humanity and just a dash of fantastic drama.
The problem lies in the film's inability to decide whether such loaded images are funny in a Farrelly Brothers/Dave Chapelle kind of way or if they mean something deeper.
Never boring, never pretentious, never preachy, Neo Ned could find its place alongside some of the great independent romance films of all time, if enough people are able to catch a glimpse of it.
In spite of its technical weaknesses (which brought this movie down for me a bit) this is still a really good movie with a good story and some strong performances. I don't think it goes as deep as it should into the complexities of a neo Nazi dating a black woman, they just really gloss over it. Maybe they were going for a lighter tone, if so, I can understand that...since this is a movie about the ability for people to change their ways, so in that regards it's acceptable. The weaknesses mostly go to the look of the film. It does look like a very low-budget movie, but they make the most with what they had so I can't fault it that much. There's also some iffy pacing near the middle of the movie. But the movie makes up for it with heart and great acting, especially by Jeremy Renner. He definitely always gives it his all, no matter what. The ending is also pretty damn great and sweet and almost added half a star to the movie. So overall, while it has some glaring technical issues, this is a really good movie that, unfortunately, not enough people will get to see. But it is on netflix, so if you have it...go watch it.
Here's an interesting movie about two individuals, with problems of their own, connect in a mental institution. They decide to take on the responsibilities of the outside world, and become part of it when their deepest fears become too much to bear. Great cast- Jeremy Renner, Gabrielle Union, Ethan Suplee, and Eddie Kay Thomas. Worth seeing!
