2009 **** 24 mins.
Five years in the making, Bleeding and Betrayed is Kenneth Starcher's first attempt at filmmaking. Shot in 2004 but not edited until 2009, Bleeding and Betrayed centers around three seemingly different personas philosphizing on life, sharing their past experiences. Based upon an essay Kenneth wrote in 2003, Bleeding and Betrayed is a film meant to be discussed and criticized.
Okay, trying to write a completely unbiased review here. The ideas and presentation of the film are interesting and worth experiencing. My main problem with the film is the video and audio quality. It couldn't really be helped because it was all I had to work with, but it does still make the film a bit hard to watch. Plus, there are plenty of things that could have been done differently to improve the situation. Overall, though, this film has been delivering its desired impact on its viewers, some of whom even seem to like the film more than I do, as the director.
