The editing and photography failed a strong script.

The story takes place in a day of the life of Angelica DeGrassi, a locally well-known singer. It is obvious from the beginning that she is going through an emotional breakdown, (I won't give it away, but it has something to do with the picture of the caveman on the refrigerator). She is an artist, and like any good artist in emotionally charged times, she makes a whole project (an album) overnight. Even though her and her team (consisting of her manager, beats-maker, organizer-guy, and two assistants) have already made an album that they are going to perform that evening, DeGrassi insists that they do the Untitled Album. Why? Because it would be the truthful thing to do, that's why. She is doing what she is supposed to do, she is following her heart.

She has to fight for it though because many others are counting on her. She is surrounded by doubt and dysfunction. Nanci Zoppi was terrific, the strongest actor in the movie. She is playing a tough hearted woman at her most vulnerable. I have to think that under different circumstances she might have been a different person who would have done different things. But this is who we see her as, and what will be will be. One of the things she does is fire her manager. Based on their one scene, I would have fired him too. He was such an asshole, and I couldn't tell if they were both having a bad day, or if he had always been an asshole. Well, either way she fires him, because that is what her heart is telling her to do. I believe some of the one dimensional scenes such as that one are not from faults in the script, but from the actors. Other scenes like the one she has with the radio host encounters the same problem. As she explains to him her idea of doing the Untitled Album (instead of the original one), he constantly prods and patronizes her. I didn't know why he was so unnecessarily aggressive towards her, he just was. There can be an argument that it was somehow her impression of the situation, but I don't think so. To me he was just a dick, and it was an irritating scene. Look, her idea is a little illogical (the whole way the show was put together is), but that's the whole point. Look, of course people will meet her with venom, but it should be hidden away, like a snake hides it. In real life that's how people are. Then one would film it as if they are revealing the ill-will (the hatred, lies, lust, etc) of others, oneself.

The ones who have positive things to say to her are mostly lost and confused, just as bad. So there seems to be no support for her worth as an artist, even when one says she is good or bad. Sometimes you wonder if she is also like them. But in the end you see that she does have something that none of them do, realness, truth, and beauty.

This is a film about the creative mind and the people it hurts, mystifies, enrages, and engages. The creative mind is rooted in real truth, truth that can't be divided, decided, resolved, or marketed. This truth makes artists do things that seem illogical in real life, but in real life it can be the right thing to do. Was this film the right thing to do? Of course, and for the same reasons. The editing, photography, and sometimes the acting failed this screenplay tremendously. However I was touched at the end, so I can not say that it should not have been made. It is very obvious it was supposed to be. It is a personal film, rooted from real feelings, therefore it speaks truth, therefore it doesn't totally fail. It is true art.
