Watch Octane - Alternative Versions.
From the outset, I should state that this is a review of the film
DOLPHINS as cut by the Director Mark Jay, and not the bastardized DVD
version (brought out as Dolphins by Sony in Europe and as Octane by
Lionsgate in the US) that seems to have so disappointed the reviewers
who have already posted. Word has it that the DVD version was re-cut by
the distributors without the director's involvement.
I was lucky enough to catch the Director's Cut of Dolphins at the
BOLOGNA FILM FESTIVAL in Italy. I liked it enough to want to have a DVD
copy, but when the DVD arrived in the post I realized why the previous
reviews had been so negative... it's a very different film! I'll speak
about the DIRECTOR'S CUT of Dolphins first then come back to the DVD
version of Dolphins/Octane.
The DIRECTOR'S CUT: Filmed in Brighton UK, it is a story about two
youngsters from different sides of the tracks who meet by chance and
fall in love. Ophelia James is a beautiful, self-harming, punk princess
who lives in a large and luxurious house by the sea. Brent Black is a
bright, handsome young bloke from a poor, rundown housing estate. The
classic story is given an original twist by being set against the
background of Brighton's illegal street racing scene, with its amazing
customized cars and go-faster attitude.
Most of the cast give wonderfully convincing naturalistic performances.
Despite the low budget listed on IMDb, it has remarkably high
production values, with the racing scenes being particularly
impressive. Most scenes are shot with a striking documentary style
realism that draws the viewer in. These are inter-cut with beautiful
and poetic images in the romantic scenes, which demonstrate the
director's strong and original visual eye. The pairing of these two
opposing styles shouldn't work, but they are so skilfully woven
together that it does. The action is backed by a series of well-chosen
and often classic tracks, although the scored music is a little
underwhelming in places. My vote for the DIRECTOR'S CUT of Dolphins is
7.5/10, but considering it's a first feature I'm impatient to see what
Mark Jay will do next.
The DVD VERSION of Dolphins/Octane is very different. The film has been
re-cut in an apparent attempt to convert it from an across the tracks
romance into a boy racers' bonanza. It's obviously trying to be a UK
version of "The Fast and the Furious", but it doesn't work. A lot of
what's good in Dolphins has been brutally and ineptly cut out and
replaced, it appears, by alternative takes of the racing scenes. The
result is flat, unbalanced and uninspiring. It's difficult to
understand why someone would take a perfectly good film and ruin it!!
My vote for the DVD VERSION of Dolphins/Octane is 6/10.
