    Black is interested in big themes -- including guilt and redemption -- and is helped by a strong cast capable of carrying the dramatic sequences.

    Name cast, occasional deft touches and nifty contrast between the two locales cannot overcome script's terminal awkwardness.

    Director Black is competent with the camera, but he seems to have instructed the entire cast to deliver their lines in hushed tones and pauses pregnant with hoped-for meaning -- except for Kwanten, whose overenthusiastic impersonation of a red-state rube is as grating as horseshoes on a blackboard.

    I thought that this movie was GREAT!! It was story and character driven rather than sex and violence driven. This puts a very interesting spin on literally trying to find one's self and coming to terms with sanity itself. Very interesting filming and the cast is superb. Expand
