Sci-Fi

D.A.N.L. (2014)

I have no idea who made this movie. It has no credits at all and a web search yielded no details. I thought it was a nice piece of Indy fun. If you know anything about this film, I’m curious. Maybe it was made for a film school or something? I am forgiving of films that don’t cost 100 million dollars and I’ve got to appreciate a good yarn.

Drama
