We are the Sprocket Holes 149

Wooden Acting? Plastic Stars? Hell no! Well, er, actually yes.

[Insert Keanu Reeves, Cameron Diaz joke here] Actually, there are probably a lot of fans of the strange Japanese satire, The Fuccon's around these parts, so having actual Mannequins do the visual portion of the acting is not a new thing. Taking that to the obvious next level, a feature length film, director Daniel Erickson has crafted some what of a throwback to relationship melodrama and noir conventions of yesteryear to spin out one of the more odd confections (and that is saying something) at this years Fantasia Film Festival. It should be noted that there is indeed at least one top shelf actor doing the voices in Eve's Necklace, the most excellent character-actor John Hawkes of Deadwood, Eastbound&Down, and most recently kicking ass in Winter's Bone.
