3.0 out of 5 stars Middle of the road 29 Sep 2006
Format:DVD
I wouldn't call this movie fantastic, but it certainly falls in to the 'OK' category. Courtney Cox plays a woman whose partner gets shot in a hold-up at a local store. She then starts getting photos of the event sent to her and slowly her life unravels and she thinks she is going mad. Is she? Watch and see. Not a bad movie to watch when there's nothing else going on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Weird 8 April 2006
Format:DVD
I can't explain the movie very, it can be confusing if you don't watch carefully, but if you do you will realise that this movie is great (OK - not Oscar-worthy but good for a low budget film). Courteney Cox shows she can play other characters that aren't Monica Geller and excels in th elead roll.

i found this film to be very confusing with flashbacks but even at the end of the film i was no wiser to what had actually happened in the film as usual Courteney Cox did well with a muddled script and direction

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring!!! 29 May 2007
Format:DVD
This was such a boring film. It started quite well but then jumped from one bit to the next. I certainly didn't like Courtney Cox in this film - I didn't think the part suited her at all. Wouldn't reccommend it to anyone!!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Mystery Sucks You In, and Then, Well...... 24 Dec 2005
By mirasreviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
"November" is a mystery/suspense in which the structure of the film, itself, provides the mystery behind the traumatic memories of Los Angeles photographer Sophie Jacobs (Courteney Cox). Sophie's live-in boyfriend Hugh (James LeGros) was shot to death in a convenience store robbery. Now Sophie is having debilitating headaches and seeing a psychiatrist (Nora Dunn), who believes her symptoms may be the result of guilt. But Sophie seems to be doing things she doesn't remember, seeing things that don't make sense, and when a photo taken of the convenience store the night of the robbery turns up, Sophie's confusion deepens and the line between imagination and reality is blurred.

"November" moves slowly and is sporadically non-narrative. It's a circular, inscrutable account of the tricks that memory play on Sophie in the aftermath of some trauma....or perhaps no trauma. The film's strength is that it draws the audience into the mystery of Sophie's memory with flashbacks of the shooting throughout, giving the impression that there is something more to know which may be revealed if we follow the film's disjointed progression. "November" has 2 big strikes against it, though. One is that it is like a jigsaw puzzle with too many pieces. It doesn't add up. Director Greg Harrison has erroneously called this "ambiguity". That would imply that "November" can be interpreted more than one way. I challenge anyone to interpret it at all. Harrison does not have a clear idea of what he wants to say, so, ultimately, it doesn't come across.

The second strike against "November" is the way it looks. This film was shot in 15 days on Mini DV, and it looks even worse than that implies. It doesn't help that most of the film was shot in low light. It's very grainy. The lighting is multicolored, but primarily deathly tungsten blue or sickly fluorescent green. That's intentional. Add to this cheap, jarring visual effects, and "November" is practically unwatchable. I've been hearing for years how DV would revolutionize independent film by making it affordable for anyone to be a filmmaker. Well, I've seen a handful low-budget DV films in the past year, and I don't think I can take many more films that look this bad. I'm sure some of these filmmakers see themselves as innovative or avant-garde, but there is nothing in the world more conventional or commonplace than ugliness.

The DVD (Sony Pictures 2005): There is an "Alternate Opening Sequence" (3 min), with commentary, that is not as good as the credit sequence that made the final cut. In "A Conversation with Lew Baldwin, composer/visual effects" (9 min), director Greg Harrison and Baldwin talk about creating the first sequence in the convenience store. "Photo Galleries" includes slide shows of 3 galleries: New York photographer Michele Asselin provides the photos that make up Sophie (3 min) and Jesse's (1 min) portfolios, which we see hanging on the walls in the movie. There are also behind-the-scenes photos (1 min). There are 2 audio commentary tracks: The first is by director Greg Harrison and screenwriter Benjamin Brand. They discuss the narrative structure of the film and compare the film to the script. The second commentary is by director Greg Harrison and cinematographer Nancy Schreiber. They talk about the film's colors, in-camera effects, lighting set-ups, and a lot about filming. Subtitles for the film are available in French.

3.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't stop watching this very flawed film 7 Jan 2006
By K. Corn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Kudos to Courtney Cox for pushing the envelope and striking out in a new direction in her acting career. She does quite well in creating a believable woman who has experienced a violent and very traumatic event - as has her boyfriend. From the start of the film, the viewer knows parts of what has occured and then must figure out the entire story.

Part of the mystery of this film is figuring out exactly WHAT Cox's character has experienced and separting truth from fantasy. At the end of the film, you'll have to decide much of that yourself. The film is divided into titled sections like "Denial"..."Acceptance"...etc. But how much of what is being shown is actually in "real" time and how much is memory? That is the question around which the film focuses.

Films like this (it has echoes of Momento) can be riveting but I found the various plot lines to be distracting and (often) quite confusing. For that reason, I can't recommend this film as highly as I'd prefer, although it was a unique attempt to provide a very different point of view from the usual films.

The "Extras" section of the DVD is worth watching to learn about how special effects were created, often without any planning but simply on the spur of the moment. I was awed by that fact as some of these effects were riveting.

This movie definitely held my attention but it left me feeling unsatisfied as well. There were too many loose ends, too many unanswered questions. Perhaps this lack of clarity was intentional and maybe the ending makes sense in the context of the entire film and the state of mind of the woman in the film.

I admit I have very mixed emotions about this movie. I wouldn't go out of my way to watch it again, yet I was intrigued enough to want to figure out the plot and solve the mystery.

3.0 out of 5 stars It Had Potential 23 July 2005
By Emmeaki - Published on Amazon.com
Courtney Cox stars as Sophie, a young photography teacher who is traumatized by the death if her boyfriend, who was shot in a convenient store robbery while she waited for him in the car. Sophie is dealing with the trauma by seeing a therapist and reveals that she cheated on her boyfriend with a coworker. Afterwards, a photo of her in the car the night of the robbery mysteriously appears in a slide show presentation given by one of her students. Then the surveillance video from the robbery pops up on her television one night.

Just when you are starting to get spooked, the whole scenario is repeated with the boyfriend still being alive. Every event is repeated, Sophie visiting the therapist, Sophie having lunch with her mother, the robbery, etc. Just when you think that this is it, boom! The scenario is changed again. In the end, you are left with four or five different stories and no clarity about what actually happened.

The cinematography was excellent, very dark and grainy reminiscent of a student film. The acting was good, but I think they should have had one story and stuck with it. It was entertaining, but there was more style over substance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful, engaging movie 7 July 2006
By M. Bond - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
If you like to sit and think about a movie for awhile after watching it, then I think this is a great movie to watch. I can understand how a person might get frustrated with the odd sequence of events, the seemingly changing plotline and the visual effects. However, if you are willing to give this movie a try, then you will hopefully understand the point in the unconventional elements of this movie.

Everything pulls together in the end of the movie, and if you do not pick up on what the movie is really conveying (because it really does make sense-honestly), then listen to the film's commentary. Once you get the ending, you can really enjoy the point of view and the tone of the movie. I found it to be truly unique.

1.0 out of 5 stars I can't believe.... 2 Jan 2006
By M. Fonseca - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
So, you're a very famous TV star, who had some highs and lows when it comes to the big screen. Although very rich, you still want to take credit as a serious and competent movie actress. So, what did Courteney Cox do? She found herself a small budget independent movie and went for it.

But I think she should have read the scritp first. This movie is simply obnoxious. I tell you, there isn't no puzzle here. Just a director and screenwriter messing with the audience for LONG 73 minutes.... How can a movie so short be so boring, so excruciantingly slow?!! It's almost a miracle... Shot on Digital Video Camera, the visual is bad, grainy, most of the times GREEN. That's it: green!

As for the history, it's almost unbeliavable, so bad, meaningless and utterly manipulative. It seems that there was no script available at all, the director and producers were shooting as the "ideas" appeared...

This is one of the worst movies I've ever watched, simply put. And that's a shame, because I personally like Courteney Cox very much.
