With its non-linear, cycling structure and New York creative milieu, SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE has the feel of a nineties indie. The lives of four attractive New Yorkers become inextricably intertwined through a series of coincidental encounters that have drastic effects on their other relationships. When graphic artist Sofia (Marisol Miranda) arrives at her appointment with psychiatrist Nelson Spencer (Dennis Rubin Green), she thinks she has found something more substantial than one night stands when she meets lawyer Kofi (Charles Miller) who she assumes is one of Nelson's patients but is actually his brother. While certainly a cheating cad looking for a hookup, Kofi has been on the emotional outs with his advertising executive wife Billie (Cassandra Freeman) for the last six months and her apparent insensitivity when he makes an effort suggests that she no longer desires him and has found someone else. Billie has not actually found someone else, but her reluctance to go home to a nightly argument has lead to a friendship with co-worker Alex (Louisa Ward) that may be something more. Nelson finding out that his brother is dating one of his patients is nothing compared to the shock Kofi experiences when he discovers that Sofia has been doing freelance work for Billie (none of these revelations is really a shock if you've seen more than one indie film about intertwined love and sex lives). Born out of a year-long improvisation exercise, the end product is less interesting in what it has to say about adult relationships than in the mostly assured performances of new faces and the ways in which it plays and replays sequences from one point of view and then the other to unveil discoveries made by each that explain their behavior as seen by the other. Ultimately it is more of a portfolio piece than a statement (artistic, cultural, or sociological),

Comments

Omnibus' single-layer DVD provides a serviceable progressive, anamorphic encode of this digitally-lensed film. The Dolby Digital 5.1 track is mostly front-oriented apart from busier exteriors and party scenes. Optional English SDH subtitles are included along with closed captioning. The sole extra is a trailer for the film.
