Life, love, and the fear of failing… Lilli Black, battling her painful memories and the secrets surrounding her dying father, collides into the complicated and obsessive life of Morrison Wiley on the streets of New York City. This peculiar love story exposes Lilli’s internal bouts and her nightmarish “bad luck”. We weave in and out of eight defective lives and go for a turbulent mental ride where Lilli’s reality spirals out of control and we’re lead to an unforgettable climax where some fall apart and some piece themselves together.

Film Review

A very grim effort, well acted. Larry Pine, for example, gives one of many understated performances. Taj Crown is hilarious as a stoned pizza shop worker.I commend Elster for not letting the angst-addled script and her relative inexperience go by the wayside of over-the-top performances.I saw it on the Sundance Channel during their New Voices night. I wish Elster the best but if I had the chance to do it again-I wouldn’t.If I want to see pain, suffering, depression and agony, I’ll make a movie of my own life.

Jennifer Elster and Gale Howard give beautiful performances in "Particles of Truth," a strange but compelling tale of two emotionally damaged young people who discover one another on the mean streets of bohemian Manhattan.Lilli is an aspiring artist who suffers from grave misgivings about herself both as an artist and as a person. She finds herself unable to trust people thanks to her troubled upbringing at the hands of her dysfunctional parents. Morrison is a sensitive and talented published author who is so obsessed with cleanliness and germs that he has made himself a virtual prisoner to his apartment and car. In fact, he gathers material for his writing by cruising around town taking down what it is he believes the people around him are thinking. Haltingly, tentatively, Lilli and Morrison grope towards an understanding of one another, hoping that that will lead them to a lasting relationship.The film, artfully written and directed by Elster herself, is chock full of mean…

Wow, the other comments seem awfully snobbish to me. Anyhow, I liked the film, but do tend to enjoy films that fade to black frequently and I’m not perturbed by flashes of different scenes…there’s a German term for it, but I forget what it is. I think maybe leitmotif’s or something like that. Anyhow this film is chock-a-block full of it.There is one gripe I have with the film. As a mature artist the main character produces paintings of scared girls or fetuses on a black background. These same paintings show up in the background in the crappy apartment where her parents get high when she was a child. And you know it’s not that she could paint them at that age because they have her holding up drawings she’s doing with crayons. So I dislike that.But overall I really liked the whole film. And someone said it’s not plot driven. I don’t get that at all. It’s a dark romance film. In the end the guy gets the girl. And there are many turns and twists along the way. And then someone else grip…
