Besotted Review


Good
This exceptionally strange romantic drama masquerades as a supernatural comedy, but at heart it's another hyper-realistic story of mature romance (as opposed to the usual teen rom-com). Director Holly Hardman plays a witch of sorts who gets tapped to aid in a case of unrequited love that local town drunk Shep (Jim Chiros) has for lady lobster fisher and ex-lover Vicky (Susan Gibney). Hardman moves statuettes around a magic chessboard of sorts for 90 minutes, with unpredictable, yet not terribly compelling results. Strangely, the DVD case describes this as "an illuminating experiment with the creative process," but there's nothing experimental on the screen. Besotted comes across as just another indie romantic drama that didn't really go anywhere. (If something kooky is happening behind the scenes -- like they shot the movie without a script or something -- I'm clueless about it.)
