CARVING A LIFE is a really nice indie find!
27 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

CARVING A LIFE is a really nice indie find! It deals with the very real problem of addiction in a non- cliché way rather than veering off into Melodrama like so many films before it. The camera work is awesome and professional and the editing is super creative and non-linear. The cast is also really strong, especially the leads. Performances this strong keep you in the story and make it feel very powerful. If you've ever dealt with friends or family with addiction problems and issues like these, this film will really resonate with you. Great work!
