Because Baggage has been kept under wraps, it has not
been seen in any festival, therefore, no critics have reviewed
it, but the director did slip a copy to best-selling author,
Po Bronson (The Nudist on the Late Shift, The First 20 Million
is the Hardest, Wired Magzine),
interviewed the director for his highly anticipated book, What
Should I Do with My Life?
Po said the following about the film....
(Mariette Hartley) reveals some deep dark secrets
old classmate, Sandy (M. Emmet Walsh)
is played by Justine Priestly (sister of Jason)
Will Martin finally have the courage to approach her?
"A wonderful film, very heartfelt, very
interesting, always engaging, good acting, great story-- real,
not a fable, with glimpses of our romantic notions. I loved the
symmetry, but it was always unforced. "
-Po Bronson (www.pobronson.com)
only can you be one of the first people to view Baggage,
you can also be one of the first to review it.
The best reviews will be uploaded on this page.
film is one of those you can go see, and just love to talk
about afterward with your friends over dinner... it's one
of those that makes you think and feel and leaves lasing
impressions on you. The actor who played Martin, in my humble
opinion, did an excellent job of portraying the internal
emotional conversation. I really liked Tyler and Monica.
I'll bet these 2 actors will do well longterm. I really
liked M. Emmet Walsh's portrayal... actually, I liked all
the actors' work. It also seemed seamless the way you moved
from the 3 groups back and forth. I liked the way they tied
together. I found it interesting that this film really dealt
more with the "boy/man/male" point-of-view. It went beyond
the macho, surface figures to show males who are struggling
emotionally with life's events. I think teen boys would
benefit from seeing it. " - Alanna from LoveStories.com
Reviews and fan mail from the director's previous feature entitled
Nothing collects urgency as we get a feel for the protagonist."
-Roger Ebert (Chicago Sun Times)
"Sprinkled throughout Nothing, there are literally hundreds
of moments that are so beautifully structured,
so surprisingly set up, and about so much more than they appear
to be at face value, you wind up being awed
that Aaronson is so totally in control of the medium. His editing
sense is flawless.
His personality is delightfully flawed. It's the perfect commingling."
-Brandon Judell (America On-Line Critics Choice)
"I went to Rocket Video last night to find something. Instead,
I found Nothing.
It was engaging, charming, thought-provoking, and thoroughly
Congratulations on your accomplishment. The Cherokee say that
answers are fish,
questions are the river. The fish sustains for a day, the questions
sustain for a lifetime.
Congratulations on discovering the river so early in life...
I've always been one to recognize
and appreciate the kindred traveller. Please add me to what
must, by now, be a very large
number of people who have enjoyed your perspective on the river
