Psychos in Love

Apart (2011)
Dir - Aaron Rottinghaus

The joy of film festivals is going into something blind and being pleasantly surprised. This is an independent film from a first time feature director that was shot primarily in a smaller town outside of Houston. You couldn't really tell that the budget was limited because everything about this was so well made. Shot beautifully, wonderfully acted and a tight script. It's told in a disjointed, non-linear fashion (think Memento) that doesn't get confusing but adds a lot to the film's mystery. Hope this gets a wider release because I think a lot of people will really like what they see.

Oh, and gotta love that Joey Lauren Adams gets big billing when she's only in the film for about 5 minutes.
