Paradox Lake

Przemyslaw Reut, a native of Warsaw who graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York City, directed this disastrous 2001 indie feature about a selfish twentysomething living with his mother who learns to reach out to others while working at a summer camp for autistic children. Reut uses professional actors to play the main characters and fills out his ensemble with staffers and children from a real summer camp; long stretches of the film consist of one shot after another of the children, many of whom are so severely disabled it's hard to believe they know they're part of a film project. The screenplay is credited to Reut and Wieslaw Saniewski, but the storytelling is so minimal, the camerawork so amateurish, and the editing so slapdash that often I couldn't tell what was going on. 84 min.
