Numb (2003, USA) C-77m. * D: Michael Ferris Gibson. Starring Jennifer West Savitch, Dominik Overstreet, Anne Goldmann, Peter Abraham, John Randolph. Low-budget sci-fi independent feature about a young woman, who sets out to find her father in a drug-controlled world. Alternating grainy color sequences and black-and-white scenes adds up to very little. You can feel it wants to be meaningful, but ends up being pretentious instead.
