Uncapie Wants You To Know That YESTERDAY WAS A LIE!!

People! I am Uncapie! In "Yesterday Was A Lie," director/writer James Kerwin has come up with a fresh and stylish take on the Film Noir movies of the 40s and 50s. Imagine if Warner brothers gave Lauren Bacall the chance to play a female version of the "Sam Spade," "Philip Marlowe" or the "Continental Op." Actress Kipleigh Brown gets that chance as the gumshoe out to solve a perplexing mystery as "Hoyle."
As Hoyle sets out to solve her case, she runs into unforeseen events that become fragmented and disconnected - leading her into a surreal universe & uncovering a plot to bend reality as she discovers the know the truth about life itself. Deliciously photographed under the creative eye of Jason Cochard, Kewin weaves us a tale of intrigue and metaphysical darkness that keeps the flavor of those noir movies while slowly unraveling the story.
Told in nonlinear fashion, the clues to the mystery show up where you least expect them, drawing the audience into Hoyle's adventure. A taste here. A taste there. Just enough to whet the appetite. Chase Masterson (from "Deep Space Nine" fame) is the sexy torch singer that teams up with Hoyle to aid in her case. Masterson turns in some amazing work, and performs her own feel like this movie was shot fifty years ago.
Also noted is actor John Newton, who portrays "Dudas". He has a 21st Century George Hamilton look about him. He holds the key to the story that everyone wants - a dangerous, forbidden book with a formula to bend reality. Like "Pandora's Box," once the lid is lifted, there is no turning back. Padded with interesting character actors such as Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca from "Star Wars), Mik Scriba and a small cameo by perennial favorite H. M. Wynatt, "Yesterday Is A Lie" - within the last week - has won two Best Picture Awards at the Backlot Film Festival and the Brilliant Light Film Festival. Special mention should go to the crew who worked so hard on this film, especially Chase Masterson. When the original investors backed out at the last minute (leaving the production hanging under the Sword of Damocles), Chase stepped up to the plate and put her own money in to finish it. Classy lady. For more information and where it will be playing next, check out their website HERE or e-mail them directly at "Yesterday Is A Lie" is a unique, refreshing look on a popular genre. Well worth seeing. Uncapie

    by tonagan

    Which from today's story is the new title. Hopefully it won't be confused with Spike Lee's film.

    Doesn't look like it was shot 50 years ago

    by Guy Who Got A Headache And Accidentally Saves The World

    Looks like it was shot yesterday in someone's basement. I think it's the first picture, you should have put it on the bottom.

    I was looking forward to another pre-release review from a movie spy and instead I get this big puff full of pics,e-mail addresses and links. This looks a lot like a press release. In fact it IS a press release. Why is it on this site?

  • April 12, 2008, 12:04 p.m. CST

    So it is a press release

    by RyanEsta

    It all makes sense now. Jeremy_Cox, it's not a review it's a press release for a no-name movie. I don't mind AICN shedding light on movies they think deserve to be known, but they should post a review or something of this nature, not just a press release. It reads more like a shameless plug

  • April 12, 2008, 2:24 p.m. CST


    by Jeremy_Cox

    i see no evidence that this is a "press release"... accusing harry of posting a press release as a review is a pretty strong accusation to make, so you better have some evidence to back that shit up. what i see happened is, 1) aicn posted a postive review of a film, 2) the film makers quoted the review in the movies presskit (which happens every day on many films). how does that make the review itself a 'press release'? that's just gay. suspicious... a sudden onslought of a few people railing on a film they never even seen... sounds to me like you have some kind of personal vendetta against the movie or something, like you weren't hired for a job or something? methinks thou dost protest to much.

    by Uncapie

    Gee, since I have no monetary connection or vested interest in the film, but having enjoyed the movie(Along with the audience who gave it a huge round of applause at the screening I was at.), gave it a positive review and considering it won two Best Picture awards at two different film festivals, it pretty much speaks for the movie itself. You're the kind of guys that want to know that "Rosebud" was the sled in "Citizen Kane" or "Darth Vader" is "Luke's" dad and then you're pissed off because someone told you the ending. You want to see a good movie and be surprised? Go see this one. You don't want to see a good movie? The Cartoon Channel is on 24 hours days. Enjoy.

    Hmmm, interesting gotham_knight...

    by Uncapie

    Since her name is up there as actress(As well as an amazing singer.) and producer, she seems to have a long list of credits and makes a living at doing what she likes and quite well, I might add. I searched and searched for your name, but alas, I was unable to find any of your accomplishments. Oh, well we all can't be shovellers at the dung factory.
