"Date Number One" Review Number One! (it rocks)

Chuck Tryon, blogger & media professor, is the first person to publish a review of my brand spankin' new film Date Number One. Chuck caught the movie last night at its World Premiere in DC.

Here's a paragraph from the long review:

" Like the characters in Jarmusch's Coffee and Cigarettes who reflect on concepts of celebrity and fame, Date Number One's twentysomethings find themselves returning to certain questions, in Date's case the potential relationship between quantum mechanics and Buddhism, with varying degrees of seriousness and authority. The conversations provide some degree of unity between the various episodes, but more importantly, the conversations seem to suggest the way in which ideas or concepts can weave their way through a community of artists and readers who spend a lot of time in bookstores and coffeehouses. An overheard snippet of conversation might be picked up by someone else, and the questions about Buddhism and quantum mechanics take an unexpected direction. "

And later Chuck goes on to say:

" Date Number One is quite funny and treats the dating life of DC twentysomethings with a light touch,..."

Check out the entire review here.

Thanks Chuck for taking the time out from your busy day to check out my
"no"*-budget/no-Hollywood stars/no-Indiewood stars/self-distributed (on a very low budget)/superdelicious film & then writing about it.

A big thank you also goes out to everyone who helped in getting the film made, & the people who are helping out w/ screenings & other juicy distribution tasks. You rock! Can't do it w/ out ya.

* the total budget - cash spent on the making of Date Number One (from script to screen) was roughly under $10K (that includes buying a mac & all necessary gear for editing), i'll total up the receipts soon

Man, I hope I get a review that good someday. Congrats on a great premiere -- and you better have a DVD ready to show me when I come to DC, because I want to see this thing!

I also want to meet your Komodo Dragon.
