Love it.
Okay, there was five minutes of enjoyment. First, I laughed my ass off at the concept. It is somewhat of a fish out of water story. Second, I like drugs and sex. Third, the characters where wonderful and well defined with an edgy off-the-cuff sort of style. Fourth, the narration is smooth and well delivered. What are we on now...Fifth...lighting was solid....sixth...good sound quality. Sound is a bitch, I'm still struggling with it myself.

Right.

So, for the critique I have to say that I didn't get the last joke about it must've been viagra. Maybe I don't know enough about the side effects of viagra. Would suggest a line or two at the beginning to set-up the end. I'm sure it works if one is informed on this sort of thing, but it can't hurt to "idiot proof" the thing with a quicky V.O line.

Does feel a little Guy Ritchiesque. But, that's what I've been exposed to as far as the Brit crime genre goes...I'm sure you're sick of hearing it.

Anyway, good work. Hope you get some mileage out of this one. Anyway I can support your work let me know.

    Finally a movie about a man who has the same phobia of pregnant women as I do! It really was time to show preggos in the creepy light. Give it a low budget and get it on late night cable and you got a solid win for the writer. It is what it is and doesn't apologized for it. I love that. May it be judged as an absurdist comedy along the lines of Frankenhooker and The Toxic Avenger... read

    Always a good time reading a local script. We sure need more movies set in the Northwest. I got the feeling that the broadstrokes were there but the entire story felt very rushed. This one came in at 94 pages so there is a lot of room for growth. Concept: Love the concept. It felt like a Stephen King story in the beginning. I was expecting Dennis to lurk in the shadows more... read

    by Jordan Anthony Thomas on 11/22/2009
    Oh Lord! And I thought I had a sick sense humor. The saving grace here is that it is funny...for the type of people who enjoy sick humor. A lot of people would be horrified by Northern Burritos. But I do feel it has an audience. It is low budget and that's a good thing with the limited audience. Funny as it is, applying a little craft could help significantly to push it toward... read
