  1. The story, a half-baked one about treachery and greed, meanders to an unsatisfactory ending with a punch line that, well, doesn't punch very hard.

    A thoroughly engrossing movie. The pacing is unusual but a welcome break from hollywood predictability. Great characters, fabulous settings, and a plot that holds together nicely and keeps you guessing. Overall a very pleasurable and rewarding viewing experience. Full Review »

    Every element of this film was well thought out and executed. From the selection of locations, casting, the musical score, and especially the writing and directing this film is both thoughtful and entertaining. I will be looking forward to seeing absolutly anything Matt Dillon chooses to direct based on his debut as director. A throughly enjoyable film, and rare in its attention to detail and craft.
