A fairly clever little indie film that shrewdly marries the popular but well-worn "found footage" framing device to a prurient storyline.

makes a point to tell a real horror story without getting overly exploitative or gimmicky

The found footage offers a rawness to the film, and the actors do a great job of melting into that false reality.

[Nathan], who co-wrote the clever, resourceful and at times darkly wry script with Lukas Kendall, effectively combines the eclectic footage (kudos to editor Tony Randel) to form a kicky, highly involving narrative.

Less exploitative and a bit smarter than its seedy adult-film setting would suggest.

Although it takes Nathan a bit too long to get his characters to Van Nuys, knowing in advance that Dave is likely to snap not only creates suspenseful dread, but ultimately makes the moviegoer complicit in the violence (which is believably haphazard).

For thriller fans who can take some tough fare - especially those with deep suspicions about "reality" programming -- Lucky Bastard is a real find.
