Inexchange (Parker 2007)
The second episode in our mini-series devoted to the films of Zack Parker! His four films fall distinctly into two halves. We discuss the first two films first, this episode covers his first film Inexchange (2007). The first two films, including this one, were made on a shoestring budget and are more interesting in terms of seeing his development and trajectory as a filmmaker. Though we did enjoy and appreciate the resourcefulness that is clearly apparent in this film.
