Review: Andrew Boyd's Adams Ave. '13 Unplugged on Mopeds
Five-star short debuts at America's Finest Film Festival
Quit your day job, Reader Andy; Hollywood is calling.
Not since Werewolves on Wheels or Martin Marcantonio Luciano Scorsese's What's a Nice Girl Like You Doing in a Place Like This? has a first film displayed a profound and forceful mastery of the language of cinema. And with a performance such as the one Andrew Boyd delivers, surely he must be related to Hollywood immortal, Stephen Boyd.
In one film, Boyd establishes himself a master of dialectical montage, easily earning the nickname, Kuleshov, Jr. Watch as Bolshevist Boyd slyly reveals his leftist-leanings by juxtaposing The Reader corporate logo with a shot of a pig.
There's a link to the movie at the bottom of the post, but believe me, you'd be better off waiting for its big screen debut as part of 1:1 Movement's America's Finest Film Festival. The festival will take place starting at 5pm on Saturday, August 3, at USD Warren Auditorium, 5998 Alcala Park. Click for more information.
Don't forget me when you win your first Oscar, Andy.
