Not destined to make a sound

At the Gen Art Film Festival for a screening of When a Man Falls in the Forest. I don’t know that this film was ever released in theaters. Not surprising, given the rather trite material, but it seems a pity that more people won’t get the chance to see the brilliant (and brutal) scene where Timothy Hutton’s character leaves a rambling, pleading confessional voicemail message for his estranged wife (Sharon Stone). It’s all done in a single lingering close-up take — and though it feels too real to have been entirely scripted, we learned this night that it was. Every word.

Go for it ...
