A good movie is worth watching. Spin is a good movie. Well, it is not really a movie. It is more like a short film, but that is not the point. Just go watch it.
Spin starts out with the main character coming across the scene of an accident. He stands off to the side and controls the scene via his portable turntable setup. Unfortunately, messing with fate has its consequences. I can't say more without giving away some of the interesting twists in the film. The premise of the story is interesting enough that I would enjoy seeing more episodes involving the same character.
It should be noted that there is no spoken dialogue worth mentioning. However, there is a large amount said through looks and body language. The main character in particular is able to convey a wide range of meaning just through his eyes. Everything from casual indifference mixed with confidence to disbelief and determination is shown solely through his eyes. The music also plays a huge role in setting the mood and moving the film along. I still have some of the tune stuck in my head.
It is good to see an independent film made with this high of quality and still maintain its original edge. Many independent films have a tendency to shock and disgust the view in a lame attempt to appear original. This one does not do that. It is original and feels good to watch it.
Since it is shown in a flash player it is viewable across platforms. The high bandwidth selection is unfortunately just a larger version without an improvement to the quality. It therefore comes out grainy looking where the normal version does not. It would be nice to have the option of downloading a file that could be stored and played at anytime, but I understand that continuing traffic to a site is its lifeblood. Overall: a USDA Grade A quality movie created by Double Edge Films. Click.
