You ever watch a trailer and get the feeling that the director is probably trying to be too artsy? Well, that’s there feeling that I get from watching “Wish I Were Here,” the latest film from Zach Braff, while also fighting the urge to type, “Wish You Were Here,” which is an awesome song by Pink Floyd, from the album of the same name.
It wasn’t too long ago that Zach Braff made news by partially financing his project through Kickstarter. At the time some objected to him doing so because Braff is not exactly short of funds, he blazed a trail on Kickstarter that others, such as Spike Lee and Rob Thomas (“Veronica Mars”), would follow to finance their projects.
Donald Faison is also part of the cast, whom I respond fondly from “Scrubs.”
