The Illegal Reviews:

THE ILLEGAL is a movie I saw at the Austin Movie Festival, and boy, did I hate this movie. I mean, I now HATED it. This was by miles the worst movie I saw at this festival, simply because of the last 10 minutes. I would have rated this movie 6/10 if it hadn't been for the last 10 minutes. The last 10 or so mins of this film is so insulting, so abruptly cynical, so lazily concieved and so nonsensical, that it made me feel scammed. I furiously stormed out of the theatre, ranting and raving to myself about the abject cruelty and careless treatment this film gives the audience. The movie implodes spectacularly within the last 10 minutes- its like they had more of a storyline to tell, and they just decided to end it abruptly in the most jarring manner imaginable- with no explanation.This is a nice movie up until those last 10 minutes. The acting, writing and directing of this film is very good- even admirable. The relationships between the main hero and his girlfriend, his boss, his movie school teacher are all interesting and feel natural. But those last 10 minutes- everything goes . I mean- everything. For no apparent reason. The main hero breaks up with his girlfriend, he leaves movie school, and for only one apparent reason involving how much cash he has, he becomes a slave to this one restaurant, and he spends the next 4 years working there- until other aspiring young boy comes around to work- suggesting that the cycle will repeat itself. This is done so jarringly, and this is what the movie amounts up to.I am an aspiring filmmaker, and I wish to be successful in this field. That is why I was raging with fury after having wasted 90 mins of my life on this insulting garbage. The last 10 mins of this film explicitly, jarringly tells this: Don't chase your dreams. Because if you do, you absolutely will fail. Abandon all your dreams, no matter how difficult- they are not worth achieving- because we are all slaves to the greater power- that being the American capitalist system (or in this case, a restaurant). , there is no hope.This globe is screwed up in each which way. I go to films to escape from that reality for a several hours. I go to films to gain hope, not to have it taken away from me. Mr. Renzu- if you are trying to justify to folks why you took an axe to a storyline that was at most 60% told, then you are wasting time. Because you made a decision that sunk the movie and destroyed any substance it had to start with.
