Quick To Duck (2013/Cinema Epoch DVD)


Picture: D     Sound: D     Extras: D     Main Program: C



The world is full of bad things, what a man says and does is two completely separate issues, 'S@i# happens' is the motto of how life works and how people want to live.  To make ends meet, Doctor Stern (Andrew Harrington) runs a home for wayward youths while trying to satisfy his oversexed wife, his drinking and pedophiliac problem.  As he manipulates the system for money through his job, is cheating on his wife by sleeping with under-aged teens in which he is supposed to be helping in Robin Mountjoy’s Quick To Duck (2013), a release that lives up to its name after the first few minutes of screentime.


This is one of those movies that seems to have no point or plot to the movie but just a story of the lives that surround the lives of dysfunctional people and society.  As various problem teens are sent to a home for psychiatric help, the doctor is only interested keeping the kids as long as their family or insurance can send them money, they just medicate them, and when the money runs out they toss them out into the streets.  Any money they do make is spent on drugs, sex and rock n' roll. 


Oh how Steve Guttenberg has fallen to be in a movie like this!  This one was so low budget that it was actually shot on the streets, in real homes and bars on what looks like quickly on the fly.  All the side characters and background characters looked at the camera while filming in the background, and the changes between the scenes looked like a person's computer screen saver.  Just because you have Steve Guttenberg in it won't save it from still being a bad film as many of his recent appearances (including on projects that sat on the shelf for years) prove. This would be an example of how not to do an indie film, especially with him, including how awful the picture and sound are.


Fortunately, no extras!
