The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Feldman's Jewelry shop is renowned for their exquisite collection. Each piece is an entirely unique creation of owner, Nathan Feldman. But underlying his craftsmanship is a dark obsession with his work.
Beth and Aaron have decided to get married so they pay a visit to Feldman's Jewelry shop to pick out a wedding ring for Beth, As soon as she takes a look inside the owner, Nathan's case of jewels she is blown away. And then there is Nathan himself, at first he seems very nice and polite but it doesn't take long before you can tell he is a bit off. He begins talking about his jewels as if the are human, he even gives them all names. If doesn't take long for Beth to pick her stone and Nathan promises to get right on it. After the couple leaves he locks the door and heads to the basement to begin his work but this is also where the film takes a dark and sinister turn.
"Gleam" gets your attention right from the start with its exceptional production values, the cinematography and sound are fantastic. After that the actors take over as the couple looks to buy their ring from Nathan. Kati Salowsky and Alexander Gauthier are both great as Beth and Aaron but this film belongs to Sean Carmichael, He is not only the Writer and Director but he also starts as Nathan and he gives a creepy and memorable performance.
"Gleam" is the kind of movie that is so disturbing that it gets in your head and it stays there long after it is over. If I had one complaint it would be I wanted more, much more. I am not going to sit here and spoil the film for those that are interested in seeing it because this is a film that needs to seen not told about. I loved the opening scene, it had a certain charm to it, at least at first and I loved the major, dark twist that followed.
There is so much to love here, from the amazing production values to the superb acting and the story that just let you forget about it even hours after it is over. "Gleam" is a fantastic piece of cinema from a filmmaker that has it going on, I cannot recommend seeing this film enough. You can visit the film's Facebook page HERE to find out when and where you can see the film and when the opportunity arises run don't walk to check it out. I want to thanks Director, Sean Carmichael for letting me watch and review his film and I want to give a congrats to his entire cast and crew as well, a job well done. It doesn't get any better than this.
