Eyes of the Roshi “Delivers the Goods”!

The Virginian-Pilot Review

RshiPiotReview

The Virginian-Pilot Reviewer gives 2.5 out of 4 Stars.

Excerpts:

“Deep in that rot is Booker, played by the Oscar-nominated Eric Roberts (“The Pope of Greenwich Village,” “The Dark Knight.”) He plans to cash in by helping the psychotic Carey find Adam. Roberts portrays a natural-born snake. His scenes with his sidekicks – Marty (Jonathan Marten) and Itchy (Seth Marten) – brim with menace and black humor.”

“Amanda Dunn fulfills a difficult assignment as Blanche, the pretty, tough, vulnerable, troubled, confused gal who is drawn to Adam, perhaps for the serene strength he radiates. And Nguyen conveys genuineness and sincerity. He convincingly displays his fight moves, and a few neat yoga tricks, and shows the right timing for both spoken and physical comedy. Because they make us care about Blanche and Adam, we feel the dread build as Carey draws closer while his body-count grows.”

“Two climactic scenes deliver the goods. Ethan Marten slowly and quietly builds Carey into a frightening death machine. When he corners Blanche in a farmhouse, we learn a little about the man behind the evil, and it ain’t pretty. There is real A-list suspense, building to the point of horror.

Extra! Extra!

“It should be ready for exhibition by the end of March,” he said, meaning the action drama would be shown to those who might acquired and distribute it.

Lots of Love on This Set….


While shooting Eyes of the Roshi our cast was joined during week two by Eric Roberts. Eric has portrayed characters in more than 300 motion pictures. Some have earned him some wisecracks and smart ass comments, and others have earned him accolades, and Academy Award nominations.

He was both intense and laid back; demanding and easy-going; but mostly, a joy to have on set. He liked things a certain way – done right. Not a bad thing to strive for. His sense of humor was constant, and his generosity on set to his fellow actors was witnessed time and again.

Midway through the shoot, he turned to me and said; “I want to be part of your rep company.” This after doing a scene, and thinking; I would really like this experience to continue into the future. “I’ll send you a script,” he said. Uh-huh…sure you will….


Shortly after wrap while working on Post Production…we received this little gem from Eric Roberts. Looking forward to it, and many more. #Happy4th #ScriptTease #LightAgeFilmsRepCompany
