Critic Reviews for Over the GW
At a mere 76 minutes, the movie skips past what seems like lots of crucial exposition in favor of vague flashbacks and confusing inserts.
An undeniably personal if amateurish psychodrama... Gaglia's torture re-creations become rote quickly, and his cross-processed, color-tinted, randomly inserted, over-zoomed Film School 101 indulgences need their meds adjusted.
An earnest but amateurish look at a cultlike rehab, Nick Gaglia's semiautobiographical debut feature means well. Then again, so did his parents when they condemned him and his sister to a sadistic substance-abuse program.
Over the G W follows a troubled brother and sister as they are committed to a New Jersey treatment center by their well-meaning parents.
Both newcomers, the two leads impress, as does veteran actor Albert Insinnia as the center's psycho director.
Writer-director Nick Gaglia has fashioned a documentary-style drama that is too narratively disjointed to achieve maximum impact, but too emotionally potent in fits and starts to be dismissed out of hand.
