    An excellent storyline with a sophmoric script and poor execution by the director. Poorly cast as well, younger protagonists would have been more believable. Not recommeded.

    This movie is extremely overrated. To get to where this movie really gets interesting, one must get through the first 75 minutes. Yes, it is an original story. Yes, it is compelling, but only really in the final act.

It's also very low budget, which is NOT bad, but they shot it in only 11 days, so when you're watching it and want more coverage, or to see another actor's reaction and they don't cut back to this other actor....this is why. They didn't have time to get all they really needed in 11 shooting days. I don't begrudge the director the success this movie brought him -- good for him! It's just that this movie could have been SO MUCH better. Expand

  1. This is a film worth seeing, and LaBute is a filmmaker well worth watching.

    A singularly unpleasant movie.

    As a writer, LaBute is capable of creating long dialogue scenes that never seem stagey or artificial. As a director, he has the confidence to stay with those words.
