Melvin Goes to Dinner

by Amber Vega, staff writer

   

Both disturbing and comforting the International film entitled Melvin Goes to Dinner will leave its viewers emotionally exhausted. This comedy/drama has such a strong and conversational dialogue, that it retains almost a Woody Allen kind of tint to it

Written by Michael Blieden and directed by Bob Odenkirk, the film begins with the end and then proceeds to back track often in the hopes of explaining the future by correcting the past. Confused? Even in its simplistic form Melvin Goes to Dinner skates on some of the most intimate issues of today with extreme depth and sincerity without ever loosing it’s colorful and playful tone.

The setting takes place at an Italian restaurant where four individuals have been thrown together by chance to socialize and enjoy the evening. One thing leads to another and towards the end of the night every topic from religion, pornography, relationships, sex, and even ghosts have been laid out on the table.

Melvin Goes to Dinner reminds us all to have a humorous view of life despite the ever constant bull-#$%&! surrounding us.
