Blood! Sugar! Sid! Ace! film review By Andrew Buckner
Rating: ***** out of *****.

Exert: “Blood! Sugar! Sid! Ace!, the exuberantly experimental seventy-three minute debut feature from director Mike Messier, is a riveting example of cinema as an extension of the stage. It is also an exceptional exhibition of the power of minimalism on-screen.”

Exert: “…writer/director Mike Messier and camera operator/editor Tim Labonte keep the pacing quick and the lens moving. They spin us from one conversation to the next with ease, hitting chords that are vulgar, brooding, honest and heartfelt along the way.”

An Interview with Mike Messier, Director of Blood! Sugar! Sid! Ace! by Mike Haberfelner

Your new film Blood! Sugar! Sid! Ace! – in a few words, what is it about?

Sid! is a man who reflects on the mistakes he’s made with career and women. He creates an alter ego – Ace! – a younger version of himself, to retrace his own footsteps, to relive the journey that has been his life. There’s quite a bit of pain in that journey for Ace!, much of which from his relationship with Blood! – a dysfunctional broken doll of a lady, terribly sexy, a siren who represents three women (Catherine, Charlotte and Lisa) from Sid’s life. And then there’s Sugar! who represents the positive, the light of day, a sweet soul mate that many of us wish we have but never find.
