In hindsight, giving it 5 stars was perhaps a little too generous. But I felt, still feel, that the movie should be honored for using the found footage thing in the right way; during most found footage movies you constantly go, "why on earth are they still filming?!". Project X is the only movie to use found footage logically; 3 dudes throw an epic party - it makes sense they wanna document it and capture EVERYTHING.
Sometimes it's incredible what the mainstream cinema can do; while trying to appeal to the audience in the most immediate way possible, it completely disregards any sense of morality. Take Larry Clark's "Kids"; the shock value of that film is entirely dependent on the viewer's discomfort of seeing kids engaging in sex and drugs, thus making it a moral film. "Project X" doesn't seek a moral response, just laughs.
dude, if you plan to watch this, don't have high expectations because, well, its exactly what it is, a party movie about the greatest party ever. i for one am jealous of the sheer moronic fun that is depicted in this film, sure it's not cinematic genius but fuck that i liked it, and i wish i was invited to that party because it looks fucking awesome no doubt
Epic. Haven't we all always wanted to throw some version of a party like this. Well maybe not burn down the neighbourhood lol. Fun picture that certainly one-ups the risky businesses and ferris bueller's we grew up on. So wild it influenced a flash party in Edmonton of all places. Overall a fun picture with nothing deeper than a need to party driving it. Final scene with father poignant though.
