  1. Lapica isn't yet enough of a writer or director (or an actor) to make the dramatic arc unpredictable in any way. It may be effective for some as therapy. It is far less so as cinematic storytelling.
  2. Before the movie reaches its climax, it has created a mess that requires divine intervention.

    This is an indie film made for a low budget. Considering the limited resources the filmmakers had I must say they did an outstanding job. This is a very well made movie that is resonant on many levels. I would recommend this film. Full Review »

    I was really moved by this film. It's filled with daring honesty that may turn off some cynics, but amounts genuine tears for the rest of us.

    This film has quite a few remarkable features. First of all is its title, which is rather unusual and immediately grabs one's interest. It is a very well written script with stylish direction, however the real meat is the utterly convincing performances by the actors. Diane Venora, Greg Germann, Michael Bowen, and Kristina Anapau are all seasoned actors and their conviction and intensity is astounding. Monty Lapica, as the tortured juvenile Andrew, has a face which conveys a myriad of emotions with great sensitivity and few words. He can be cold as ice, but his performance is most moving when he reveals his sensitive side. The final image will linger and hold you for a long while. Full Review »
