Once Upon a Time in Covelo June 17 2010
By Teddy Oblomov - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Day of Vengeance is a nasty little film that doesn't pretend to be anything that it's not. A robbery gone bad, and betrayals born of mishap and greed, are the catalysts that set the clock ticking on this pastoral passion play.

The passage of time in an idyllic agrarian valley, where harvest festivals and bosom-heavy country girls attract the usual run of B-movie troglodytes and biblical Midway struggles, is as much a character in this tone poem as are the various and tawdry characters who come and go. A general store, a motel, a bar, a storage facility, the deceptive calm of the noon sun on sleepy shade trees, lend a sense of normalcy that beckons human depravity to do its best to dig up the dirt and sow havoc.

There's a morally ambiguous sheriff in town, and a couple of deputies whose genes lie somewhere on the genetic map between Tonto and Barney Fife, and a Prodigal Son with no purpose in life other than the pursuit of a storied stash of filthy lucre and a possible hook-up with a milk-fed buxom barkeep who can shoot the balls off a steer without her halter betraying a sweat.

Day of Vengeance is Greek myth, a tour of the underworld in the light of day. A river runs through it, Charon collects secrets and storage, Cerberus is wandering the countryside like the rabid dog he is, Romulus and Remus do a vicious cameo, Psyche bides her time and teases Eros into motel reverie, Pan is loose on the set, Zeus and Ida Lupino are looking down from Olympus, and the ultimate conflagration is a spaghetti crescendo worthy of a Leone opera.

If there's a Drive-In screen still casting images over a cracked tarmac off your dusty interstate, drop the title in the suggestion box. This movie was made for your second date.

P.S. Day of Vengeance(aka Blood Loss)won Best Action Feature at the 2009 Staten Island Film Festival. The new LifeSize Entertainment DVD release includes an entertaining commentary track with the director, screenwriter, and cinematographer, and an excellent featurette on the making of the film and its effect on a small town in Mendocino County, California.

Grreat action movie. July 29 2010
By San Diego Librarian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a very good action movie with excellent character development and an interesting setting. With lots of gun play and a good script, it delivers on many levels. Also, the bonus interviews with the people from the town where it was filmed is worth a look and provides some insight into the charm the film exhibits. Recommended.

Director Pingree is Tarantino, only more creative and subtle. May 24 2010
By Matt G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Fortunate enough to see an early screening of Day of Vengeance, my buddies and I savored it.

Director Isaac Pingree offers the Town of Covelo, California as a rich, dusty, seedy backdrop -- analogous to the Wadi Rum desert in "Lawrence of Arabia" in that it serves as a compelling character unto itself.

Against that backdrop, Pingree paints scenes like a schizophrenic cinematographic master. At times, he is Monet -- offering deliberate, subtle strokes giving a surficial impression, slowly urging the viewer to connect the dots himself and speculate about what lies beneath. Then, without warning, Pingree is Pollack -- violently splashing scenes upon the screen in what initially seems a haphazard manner, until the pace slows briefly, allowing Pingree's rich and penetrating tale and message to coalesce.

Watch it. Closely. Appreciate. "Day of Vengeance" is what indie film should be.
