«The build up seemed too slow. I almost gave up about half way through, but then the earth shook and the train went off the rails. The ending won me over for compared to story, all other elements shrink to insignificance. A very impressive achievement.»
the Overnight Train to Chicago
«Great work! I remember reading this script ages ago and really enjoying it. Glad to see it turned out so well. The voice acting was superb by everyone, which added a lot of personality to the characters. I really liked the music choices as well. For the most part I liked the slow-paced editing although there were one or two spots where I felt it dragged, such as the very beginning where the camera switches multiple times slowly between Albert and Emily. I felt that part in particular was stretched out too long, but for the most part the slow pacing actually worked really well. I liked the black and white look as well.
Overall a great story full of intrigue which is told well through great use of music and pacing. Well done! »
«The writing is solid (very Hitchcockian). The vibe is well established (music) and the vos are money. Some of the camerawork is excellent and some is questionable. The man sitting on the ground hiding scene is so misplaced as to be very memorable (in a bad way). This one is half on and half off.»
«Atmosphere created here, as with the trailer, is fantastic really captures the zeitgeist of the era (don't even know if the word zeitgeist is really appropriate here just wanted to use it). Acting was superb Mr Tuttle and the actress who played Emily really worked well together, in addition to Jorge's character. Location wise it worked brilliantly, the train mod was fantastic, the pace was slow but I think it was appropriate considering the idea of it taking place on a train (a very tedious method of travel).
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this piece, great work, Tumac.»
«Good work here Tumac. The music and color correction really set the mood. I kept getting a "Vanishing Lady" vibe from the whole ordeal. I do admit the ending left something more to be desired but overall it was an enjoyable film. Some scenes seemed to trod along on weak limbs, like whenever someone was reading or waiting I felt like I was reading and waiting with them, which makes viewing sometimes a chore. Otherwise good work!»
«This is truly the most recent tm film in a while that is worth watching. The editing,the sets,the props,the style,the music...everything fits perfectly.Bravo!
The minor downside to the film is near the ending.The ending didn't exactly quite hit the mark.I am not saying that it was a bad ending,it flows perfectly with the story.But it lacks the "surprise" element that I was expecting due to the built up of suspense throughout the whole film.I am a little let down by it.Nothing dramatic happens or change to the characters.But the rest of the film is done so well that I am probably just nip picking things.
Besides all that,it is an excellent film and I would recommend everyone to watch this recent TMU masterpiece.»
