Bubble – Movie 95 of 365

Bubble 2005Sometimes even though a movie may not be particularly great, the concept behind its creation makes it interesting enough to keep watching.  That is the case with the movie Bubble.  Billed as “another Steven Soderbergh experience”, this film set in a small town uses non-professional actors whose homes are used as sets. Their costumes are their own clothing.  It has been stated that much of the dialogue was their own as well.

Bubble is the story Martha (Debbie Doebereiner) and Kyle (Dustin James Ashley).  They are friends who work at a doll factory.  Martha takes care of her sick father and gives Kyle, who still lives with his mother, a ride to work each day.  Rose is the new girl who starts at the factory.  She immediately latches onto Martha and Kyle, invading their work breaks and their lives.  Rose (Misty Wilkins) is a bit of a user and soon not only has Martha driving her to her second job but also babysitting her daughter Jesse when she goes out for drinks with Kyle.

And then there is the murder.

This is not a particularly exciting or dramatic movie, but it is interesting.  There is a bit of a mystery with the murder although I figured out the killer pretty easily.  It drags in places when the dialogue, though realistic gets a bit long.  Doebereiner is good as Martha I think, but Ashley mumbles a lot as Kyle and it’s really hard to understand him sometimes.  This whole feature had the feel of the TV show Cold Case Files or any of the other more documentary style crime reenactment shows.

I’m not sure what “experience” Steven Soderbergh was trying to achieve, but Bubble would’ve have been much better had the experience been shorter.
