Preview: Collaborator (2012)


A frustrated playwright finds himself as a hostage to a bank robbing neighbor only to discover that he has a story to tell that might help him break his dry spell.

  • Poster: C


If I had a dollar for every generic looking poster I've seen, I'd be a very wealthy individual. There's nothing interesting or exciting about the layout, design or content that would engage even the least cynical indie film enthusiast.

  • Trailer: B+


Ignore the poster, the trailer is what will engage a potential audience. The structure is about as generic as the poster design, but the content is compelling. The idea has a lot of potential and could be executed well with these actors at work.

Oscar Prospects:

While it may be quite a bit of fun, I don't see it competing anywhere outside of the Spirit Awards.
