King Kelly

In Film Festival on March 12, 2012 at 1:46 am

My initial reaction is similar to the film Shame – beyond my threshold. The films are much different in story and technique, but the same shock value. I struggled to find a reason why these stories were captured on film.

King Kelly was well done. The acting was amazing, the editing was powerful, and the script made me a believer. But I did not benefit from learning about the story.

Some films are simply entertaining, this film is quite uncomfortable to watch. I may reflect later and find value in telling this story, but for now I need to debrief.
