Audience Reviews for You Are Alone
A deceptively good film that explores loneliness, depression, and sexuality in a tense encounter in a seedy hotel room between a high school girl who fulfills men's fantasies for money and her next-door neighbor who discovered her secret. A thoughtful, talkative script drove the film, while the images and attitudes expressed kept the viewer just slightly off-balance. The ending was particularly gut-wrenching and engendered a great deal of sympathy for both of these damaged souls. The hand-held camera work was at times a bit disconcerting but otherwise kept the viewer focused on that hotel room and the two people who bare their souls to one another. The film mainly consists of the dialog between the two principles with flashbacks showing how they ended up here. Miss Bohl has not gotten much work since filming this, and this viewer finds that disappointing, as she was very good in this, and real easy on the eyes. This one was a very pleasant surprise. The film is nowhere near as lurid as the description makes it sound. There is nudity, but it was handled tastefully and never felt gratuitous or out of place.
A sad, complicated, and challenging little independent film that will probably not resonate with many viewers -- but for those it does reach, it will pack a wallop.
Unbearable. The script, the pacing, the camerawork, the acting, all terrible. It was a really good premise (for the most part, the ending was beyond stupid) but it was completely wasted. Thank God the girl was easy on the eyes.
