This review is from: Trust [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
This film is described above as a black comedy but while it is funny and clever it is also so much more than that. Hal Hartley shows us that you can be extrodinary in the most mundane of circumstances and that we can all live our live as we choose to. What makes this a great film is the quiet and understated way the story is told, that along with every drama real live has a tendancy to carry on around you. Where Hollywood would have made this into an over blown, over acted morality play, Hal Hartley acknowledges that his audience is intelligent enough to enterpret the story themselves. We do not need to be manipulated into identifying with these caracters, we take tham as they are and and are all the more endeared to them because of this. Take a chance, let this movie into your life and see how you find yourself showing it to everyone you care about.
