David Searching ★★ 1997

Aspiring documentary filmmaker David (Rapp) is broke and boyfriendless in his two-bedroom apartment. He needs a roomie to help with the rent and comes up with newly separated Gwen (Mannheim). She's equally in search of romance (or sex, as the case may be). Oh, and David stills needs to find that elusive job. Series of vignettes do feature some talented actors but the film never goes anywhere. 103m/C VHS . Anthony Rapp, Camryn Manheim, Joseph Fuqua, Julie Halston, Stephen Spinella, John Cameron Mitchell, David Drake, Kathleen Chalfant, David Courier; D: Leslie L. Smith; W: Leslie L. Smith; C: John P. Scholz.
