Daniel Copic (Alexander Suder) is a young handsome Iraq veteran. He has returned from the war and re-entered civilian life. But something is not right. He slowly declines into a descent of loneliness, anger and sadness. ArME is written, edited and directed by Keith Voigt Jr. He´s also involved in all the technical aspects of the making of the flick. The acting is pretty good, Alexander Suder more or less carries ArME on his shoulders and does a good job portraying a veteran plagued by post traumatic stress disorder. The camerawork and editing is good, there are some nice visuals on display especially when the filmmakers captures the chaos within the main character. The soundtrack is very good! The pacing is good and this is correctly labeled as drama/horror combo on IMDB. There´s some gore in the shape of stabwounds and gunshotwounds. There´s T & A and a gratuitous sexscene in the beginning.
This review is based upon a online screener. According to Keith Voigt Jr. the screener version is pretty complete besides some VFX and audio tweaks, and the credits are missing.
ArMe should be out sometime later this year on dvd and blu ray.
Rating: 5 out of 7. I enjoyed this, it´s a little bit uneven but I´ll attribute that to the limited budget available to the filmmakers and it is very possible that it´ll be even better when post-production is finished. I like the fact that it isn´t too predictable even if we understand from the beginning that this ain´t gonna end well.
