Flooding with Love for the Kid
Working by himself, Zachary Oberzan remade First Blood, the book that introduced the world to a young vet named Rambo and his one-man war against a small town. Oberzan directed, acted, filmed, and edited the whole thing in a tiny Manhattan studio apartment for $96. He uses plastic fans for helicopters and the bathroom for the prison cell where John J. Rambo (played by Oberzan) is viciously tortured by Sheriff Teasle (played by Oberzan) while Mitch (also played by Oberzan) begs him to ease up. Yes, it’s over the top—but his performances are remarkable, and the whole thing comes together in a joyful, amazingly affecting way.
Zachary Oberzan. 2011. 107 m. NR. US. N/A.9:30 PM
