In this week’s issues of the Fort Worth Weekly, Fissure was voted Best Locally Made Film in 2008.
Here’s what they had to say:
Filmed in Dallas and the Mid-Cities, Russ Pond’s thriller screened at the AFI Dallas festival in March. The movie is about a cop who discovers rifts in the time-space continuum while responding to a domestic disturbance call. The action is set mostly in one house, and the first-time director handled the temporal shifts (and his actors) with an impressive degree of assurance.
Filmed partially in the Mid-Cities, Russ Pond’s movie manages visual and narrative dynamism.
