Cool Australian DIY cinema
An Australian b-movie! This low budget feature concerns the shy and socially awkward Warren that runs an ice cream truck. Being the product of heavy bullying and social isolation (seen through his own in-camera confessions), he is obsessed with a television actress of a local TV-show and gets completely euphoric when she shows up at his van to buy some ice cream. In the meanwhile he encounters several people who mock him or are themselves quite weird. After numerous setbacks, Warren gets Travis Bickle-like crazy. Luckily, the pretty predictable plot and rather conventional cinematography are outweighed by the authentic DIY feeling and an awesome over-the-top performance by Glenn Maynard (Warren), but it’s too close to make a real impression. It seems like Maynard and Addison Heath (the writer of Chocolate Strawberry Vanilla) are on an underground crusade though. After their collaboration on this movie, two others will follow: Under a Kaleidoscope and Bubblegum: A Detective Story. I wonder how those will turn out to be!
I read a review of this movie suggesting there was some novel twists in the movie, unlike standard mainstream movies.
I was expecting fledgling auteurs to be making a mark in Australian cinematic history.
How wrong I was.
Being a native of west Melbourne suburbs, I found the locations were recognizable and accurately reflected the demographic in this movie. These being drug addicts and life’s losers.
That was something I could suggest was positive about this movie. Along with nice cinematography and reasonable editing.
The script was slow, lacking vitality and the acting was dreary(Glenn Maynard stood out as particularly bad), uninspiring and flat. The characters were 2D and the plot was banal. Using periodic incidents of violence to make up for a missing story.
If this was a student film I would say it was a good first effort.
I am guessing that the cast and crew are trying to make their way in a ‘cliquey’ closed business and they have put this together to do something and prove their skills. Which are demonstrable in part but the movie failed as a whole.
Sad that lots of hard work has resulted in such a poor result. 2 stars – 1 is for effort, not for cinematic merit
