Random movie Friday 13th March 2015

Generation Um

plot:What appears to be three friends recovering from a wild party, spending their day using a stolen video camera, talking about their difficulties in life, turns out to be two prostitutes and their body guard.

This is a 2013 drama starring Keanu Reeves and Bojana Novakovic.

This movie tries to be like the  Before Sunrise franchise. Had it been done 20 or even 15 years ago, it might have been considered a "concept", but in the light of the times, it's just a go nowhere do nothing film. It tries to make depth of an empty wine glass, while keeping the lead actor to the left or right of the screen to draw your attention to the world around him. And sadly, that camera move is the only really cool thing about the movie.
The last four minutes when we follow the trio to a bachelor's party, is truly the only interesting thing in it. You finally get some depth to the otherwise cut-out characters.
