L for Leisure 2014
Description: A dreamy, ironic comedy about a generation of hedonistic students in the 1990s. Their favorite activity: talking endlessly. During a series of holiday days filled with sun-drenched naps, squabbling, waterskiing tournaments and love-making, the amateur actors discuss their concerns in dry dialogues. For instance, semi-intellectual reflections on the end of time and how Michael Jordan plays basketball.
Released: 20 Mar 2015 Director: Whitney Horn, Lev Kalman Writers: Whitney Horn, Whitney Horn, Lev Kalman, Lev Kalman Actors: Gabriel Abrantes, Melissa Barrera, Bene Coopersmith, Benjamin Crotty Genres: Comedy

L for Leisure Reviews:

Part documentary, part melody video, part amateur theatre… zero percent cinema. It doesn't intend to be the former three but it does hope to be the latter. Lev Kalman and Whitney Horn's L for Leisure is a rather bizarre experiment but not necessarily an outlandish one. It's formed of episodic vignettes set across the world during particular American holidays in late 1992 and early 1993. They follow college children relaxing and partying alone or together while they muse upon their studies. However, it's a deliberately stilted film. If it were to be taken purely at face value – this would be abysmal. You have to assume that the performances are intentionally caricaturesque and it's operating on a desert-dry sense of irony. Taken on that level, the movie is hilarious. While there are miniscule fragments of stories that don't lead or need to lead anywhere, the film's dialogue is comprised of pseudo-intellectual conversations and thought processes. It wants to be a study of the relationship between leisure and profession (in this case, potential profession) but it doesn't quite succeed. Sometimes it is relatable and thought provoking – particularly a brief poignant anxiety about not being nice enough to execute your own artistic concepts – but another philosophies breach absurdist lvls with how many straws they grasp. This is mostly due to how they're delivered unemotionally and insincerely. Frankly, non-actor cast or not, it's pornography grade acting. Not even a terrible student movie quality. It's now type of better for it, because the script would feel much more obnoxious taken more seriously, instead opting for this odd bewildering atmosphere. It effects in quite a dreamy mood, perhaps reflecting the uncertainty of the ideas. That wistful aspect is certainly bolstered by its astounding original electronic soundtrack composed by John Atkinson. Part contemporary, part 90s nostalgic, it's simply too nice for the movie and not just in its production value. It doesn't gel with the photo nor reflect a character's perspective. While the constructive choice to shoot on 16mm movie does have its homemade charm, it sacrifices a lot of the cinematic atmosphere and it feels as cheap as the movie itself was to make. This is a melting pot of a lot of various things that just won't mix – but it's not necessarily an example of trying and failing, it's just an unusual direction that will click with very few. Even though I was initially repelled by the clumsiness, vagueness and blatant superficiality of its style and script, I couldn't support but be drawn in, even if just out of morbid curiosity. At the very least, if your sense of humour can fit in sync with its satirical nature, then it's entertaining enough on that lvl to pull you through. It's just really hard to say whether it's in on the joke or not. L for Leisure is the kind of movie where you can't decide whether it's dumb or brilliant. This is a bit of both, and its genuine awfulness and ironic awfulness balance out to an interesting and average quality movie, with certain compliments and reservations. It's worth watching for its short length (just shy of 70 minutes) if you're a fanatic of college movies such as Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers or Richard Linklater's Dazed and Confused and movies of their thematic ilk. Though perhaps this is too light of a portion for what it should have served. 6/10 Read more @ The Awards Circuit (http://www.awardscircuit.com/)


While slightly less atrocious than the team's first 'film' "Blondes in the Jungle", L for Leisure is the kind of vapid cesspool that fills the void when talented, thoughtful filmmakers either lack the means of making movies or simply promoting/distributing them. Centered around a group of smug, fully uninteresting, privileged "grad school students" who sit around smoking drugs and flaunting their privilege, this witless bore clocks in around 74 minutes, but feels at least twice as long. What's even worse, is that it's clearly not a commentary vs these people, but presented as if they were lovable, relatable "characters" worth watching because they were able to movie them.As with their first excretion (Blondes in the Jungle), the dialog is unbearable, the acting non- existent. (save, perhaps for one montage of a singe "character" out exploring the globe on his own.) If it weren't for a handful (say 2-3) terrible ideas, L for Leisure wouldn't include any at all.Nobody could encourage or pay attention to anything these two do until they now have something to say, a storyline to tell, some lvl of commentary or just plain anything. The fact that this has been screened as widely as it has it a crime vs movie and art. My only tip for the "directors" would be to search a fresh method to spend your believe fund, preferably one that doesn't drag audiences and whole cultural art forms through the mud along with you.


I caught this film during the London Movie Festival, part of my several random bookings to avoid only watching the higher profile flicks. Lucky for me. Rarely will I ever comment on a film, personally I like to experience movies without intro or clue or expectation. So I wont be mentioning specifics. But what I will tell is that as I saw all it's filmic influences and it's many original flourishes converge, as I experienced it's tone, its audacious style, as it stole large laughs from the strangest of places, as I thought of the joy that must've been had making it, as it surprised me at each turn, I was left in no doubt that this is a serious piece of art, and to me, a masterpiece.I hope this gets the audience it deserves. I urge you to track this down. An immediate classic.
