Zachary OberzanFlooding with Love for The Kid (US, 2007)
107 minutes | Segal Theatre

Meticulously adapted from David Morrell’s novel First Blood, which introduced us to a young man named Rambo and his one-man war against a small town, Flooding With Love for the Kid is itself a one-man cinematic war. Shot entirely for $96 in a 220 sq.ft. apartment in Manhattan, it was adapted, directed, filmed, acted, and edited by one man, destroying all previous notions of low-budget filmmaking with a determination lifted from Rambo’s own infuriated rampage.
