Megalomania Film Review

Film Review By #MatthewSawyer

4/5

If you’re looking for a film that will make you question the sanity of our world and the lengths people will go to for a little fame and fortune, then look no further than Megalomania. This film follows the wild and bizarre journey of Gene, a young woman whose dreams of dancing are constantly thwarted by her delusional mother. But when a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity arises for her to compete in a dance marathon, Gene finds herself thrust into a world of drugs, manipulation, and even a long-lost father. 

 

The main actors give truly standout performances that perfectly capture the absurdity and craziness of the film. Abigail Richardson who plays Gene, delivers a powerful and emotive performance as she navigates the strange world of the dance marathon competition. Her portrayal of Gene’s frustration and determination is spot-on and truly captures the character’s journey. We also get a real treat in seeing the legendary Christopher Biggins being full-on Christopher Biggins. 

Psoter

This film is particularly hard to nail down a true meaning but one thing I took away was the film is a satirical take on our society’s obsession with reality TV and the cutthroat nature of competition. The subplot of Gene’s long-lost father also adds to the film’s overall commentary on the nature of competition and reality TV. The father’s presence in the competition highlights the manipulation and deceit that often goes on behind the scenes of these types of shows, and how people are willing to use others for their own gain. 

 

The writing and directing of Rex Russell are truly unique and like nothing I’ve ever seen in a short film. First of all, the script of the film is cleverly written and expertly balances satire, absurdity, and emotional depth. The film’s commentary on the nature of reality TV and competition is spot-on and thought-provoking. Furthermore, the direction of the film is visually striking and adds to the film’s overall weirdness. The film’s use of colour, lighting, and camera angles are all expertly done and work together to create an otherworldly and disorienting atmosphere. 

Overall, Rex Russell has created a unique and thought-provoking film that is both entertaining and intellectually stimulating. If you are looking for something truly different, this film will not disappoint. Just be prepared for a mind-bending journey that will have you questioning what is real and what is just a hallucination.
