review by
Mike Haberfelner

Food blogger Jeff (Bret Lada) has just been offered a chance to audition for the Food Channel to get his own show, and at the same time found out about his half brother Andy (Dustin Fontaine), who he never knew existed until after the death of his father. So he figures, for his audition tape why not make a cross country trip to his half brother's place to finally meet him - and shoot a cool "human interest" show at the same time. Now the initial meeting up between Jeff and Andy works pretty well, given that Andy's nothng like Jeff and especially isn't used to have Jeff's camera in the face all the time and have an entertaining reaction to it. And hey, Andy's even cool enough to have around that Jeff decides to have him around as his siekick and camera guy during the rest of his trip - before finding out of course that Andy's highly unstable. And eventually, things get out of hands, so much to that the two get into a physical fight ant Jeff makes an escape in his car leaving Andy in a motel in the middle of nowhere ... which seems to be an unbridgeable gap - until of course Jeff gets the green light from the Food Channel only if he brings Andy along as his co-host. But there's one family reunion not destined to go well ...

 

Now I'm not the biggest fan of the found footage way of filmmaking as too often the approach just comes across as a shortcut when it comes to filmmaking and what's sold as realism as in first hand experience rather takes one out of the cinematic experience. In The Andy Baker Tape the approach makes sort of sense though as it's integrated into the proceedings on a narrative level - after all, the film is to be a food vlog gone bad. Plus, more than another found footage film this is really actors' cinema, and both Bret Lada and Justin Fontaine fill their roles rather admirably, making this a pretty tense tour de force - and a cool piece of thriller cinema in the process.
