Phrembah (a potato-like mystery)
. . . is a great slice o' life flick from right here in the Land O' 'Chantment. It's about starving artists and starving dingalings and trying to make a living without getting a job or anything like that. It's made from a Native American perspective with a Native American bent, but I recognized my misspent 20s in nearly every frame. Blackhorse Lowe, the guy who made the film and played in it was at the screening I went to. I said that it reminded me of the 70s in Albuquerque, that Albuquerque in the 70s was exactly like that! He said thanks, that's what he was trying for. It's in black and white which serves it well, coming across as much as a memory as a screenplay. He's been doing the festival circuit with it; if you get the chance, see it.
IMDBmeter: 74% Phrembahmeter: 80% 'Eighty for effort' I always say, and it's a good flick.
