Review: Be Kind Rewind

Nice tagline for the now dead VHS rental industry, but for the movie, it has to be changed Be Smart Avoid !
I went to see this mostly because of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind director Michel Gondry, but found nothing really appealing in this one. I guess it’s because that movie was written with a more experienced writer (Charley Kaufman), and this one he does it on his own.
Sure, he shows he can be inventive with the camera with low budget, but this time around, it’s just plain cheesy. The lack of cohesion and solid story makes it almost unbearable.
Sure, another nice twist is the actual deeper message, but it’s just not enough. So again, Be Smart Avoid.4+.
