If you ever had a fascinating dream that doesn't seem to really make sense after you wake up and then you keep thinking about it the whole day trying to understand it because it had some moments in it that you really feel should mean something to you.......then this is the on-screen representation of it.
Bits and pieces, here and there, seem to gravitate towards one central point that doesn't want to stay in one place. It keeps moving until you stop applying your logic to it.
I loved it. After a long and chaotic search among some big budget films on Netflix & Co that made me abandon those films after only 5 or 10 minutes, The "Call for Dreams" was like a fresh air to my desperate brain.
So worth watching. Congrats to the whole team.
Life ca be complicated. This can be a tagline for this film.
Well portrayed problem that many of us would not know how to deal with.
I'm sure you've seen few films where the story is very similar. A teacher falls in love with a student. Here though it has yet a different angle. What gives this film authenticity are the characters. Very well played by Alana and Jared. You can't really tell whether they are acting or not. A rare observation in an indie production.
What I enjoyed the most after the movie was over is that I still run different scenarios in my head on what would've happened if Lila or Jason did this or that instead.
I started having some reservations at first but then.....I started realizing that I'm pretty much looking at many of my friends who face the same problems. I know it because I see them every week and hear the same stories.
The film doesn't try to take a philosophical spin on the entertainment industry. It just simply shows us to what ludicrous extent people are willing to go to fulfil their dreams and the ludicrous extent others are going so it doesn't happen.
It's a fun film to watch where Jill-Michele does excellent job making Meg's character very believable.
I tend to watch films from the technical point of view. I was all ready to "make-a-list-of-things-to-fix-if-it-was-me".
What a surprise I got myself into when after 1h 19min I realized that I forgot to make that list. This is not really a type of film I'd normally watch but I'm glad I made this exception. I was reminded again that the story is everything in a good film.
Filmed from a fly-on-the-wall perspective it shows that the director knows really well the environment and that she understands the subject matter first hand.
At times I wasn't sure whether it was a film that follows a script or a documentary. The characters were so real that sometimes I felt kind of honored to be invited to participate in their journey. And the journey is something you will keep thinking long after you finish watching the film.
I could go on and on but it's best to watch it first hand. Two thumbs up!!!
That was unexpected.
Following the news about the music industry I had some images in my head that finally made it to the form that everyone can see. Thank you Stadium Anthems!!! It's absurd, 'dumbassstick' and full of relatable sarcasm. Interestingly, I kept saying to myself 'yyyyyeap' after almost every scene I watched.
Nice work. Time really enjoyably spent.
AND of course......the original score! It shows how many hearts went into making of this film.
