In Your Eyes is an excellent romantic comedy with good performances,
perfect direction and an ingenious premise which is well raised and
developed. Fortunately, this movie counted with the presence of the
great Joss Whedon as a screenwriter, executive producer and mastermind
behind this movie's surprising debut and eventual direct digital
distribution (through Vimeo), completely eliminating the influences and
traditional processes of Hollywood's big studios. Whedon is experienced
in this kind of shunting (let's remember the brilliant mini-series Dr.
Horrible's Sing Along Blog), but it still is a very interesting market
experiment which could inspire other filmmakers to do something
similar. Well, Whedon isn't the first one to skip the "official"
distributors; however, he might be the first famous producer who dared
to do that; and of course, he can take that risk thanks to the legions
of fans who will always support his projects. But, leaving all that
aside, I liked In Your Eyes very much. Thanks to the solid performances
and perfect direction, the screenplay flows with naturalness despite
its unusual premise, and its fantasy tone never feels forced, and it
doesn't require any complicated explanations in order to justify its
existence; on the opposite, it immediately becomes an integral part of
the story and contributes to the main characters' growth, with whom we
share the mystery, curiosity and revelations of their mental
(spiritual?) linking. That warm and comfortable dynamic is among the
best elements from this movie. On the negative side, some elements from
the screenplay in the last half hour feel a bit unnecessary. However,
that's a minor fail, and it was a pleasure for me to explore a funny,
emotive and unexpectedly fresh narrative in a genre which seemed
exhausted and incapable of producing new mechanics for the romance.
Michael Stahl-David and Zoe Kazan are completely credible in the
leading roles, and director Brin Hill made an excellent work handling
unusual situations while never losing the human axis of the story. In
Your Eyes might depict a "long distance" relationship, but it's much
more sincere and passionate than any romantic comedy based on cloying
feelings and "big gestures". And besides, we can see it in any part of
the world for five dollars. Will Whedon do the same with Avengers: Age
of Ultron? Of course not, because it won't be his decision; but I would
like to see someone trying this with a blockbuster.
