Neverlost - A Movie Review

“Neverlost”, a Black Fawn Film written and directed by Chad Archibald (“Bounty Hunters”) and a Fantasia Film Festival 2010 Audience Award Winner stars Emily Alatalo (“Dead Genesis”), Ryan Barrett (“Exit Humanity”) and Jennifer Polansky (“I Hate Toronto: A Love Story”). After losing Kate (Alatalo), his high school sweetheart, in a horrific fire, Josh Higgins' (Barret) life tumbles into a depressing mix of insomnia and poor choices. After taking seemingly harmless sleeping pill, Josh is thrusted from his current banal existence to one that he had lost years earlier. As the walls of his own psychosis slowly start to close in around him, Josh must race to save himself, Kate and the parallel life that he vows can never again become...lost.  

The 411 by Maria: I am super impressed with writer/director Chad Archibald. This was an ambitious film and I hung on it's every moment. From the music, to the sets, to the script and actors it is just a great movie!!

 Josh (Ryan Barrett) can't sleep and since he can't sleep he is in constant turmoil. His thoughts are out of control along with his life. He talks his doctor into giving him sleeping pills so that he can get some rest and deal with his life. He is certain that all he needs is sleep.

While asleep he wakes to a parallel life or an alternative universe where he is with his wife/finance' (I am not sure which) perished in a fire. whatever you want to call it, it is the life he feels he was destined to live. In order to get back to that life and away from his current wife Meg, and the rat infested, stopped up toilet apartment he must take more pills.

Josh is unbalanced and his psychosis is making him crazy until he is no longer certain which life is real.

The movie is interesting and I appreciate the parallels between the two lives, between the light and dark, good and evil, ying and yang.

If you have a chance see this movie!
