Night Owl

Odd. Seemed as thou it should be very good. Had the cast, had the plot. Just missing the directing and editing. It seemed very odd, very small time. What I would expect myself to make right now. I mean the compromises that seems like they are ok, but in the end really effected the work. Steve Martin is a pleasure as always. Kevin Bacon has a neat guest appearance. But Helena Bonham Carter, it seems as thou the director was just doing a poor job of copying Fight Club. She was probably wearing the same clothes from it. On the editing side the transition between scene is reminiscent of an x-ray. Note only does it not match the tone of the movie, it seems amateur. Again something I could do. Hmm. Some movie I use the comparison that I could make it as a complement. I want to make those. This one, its what I would make if handed the job.
