One of the best Jon Liebling films of all time!
4 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

This movie is fairly unremarkable, but the real highlight is to see Jon Liebling's name on the credits. Anyone that has followed Jon's stellar film career knows that Liebling adds an immense amount of creativity and uniqueness to every project he is a part of. Liebling was only 21 at the time he worked on this picture, but his enormous talent - talent that transcends his young age - resonates throughout the film. Anyone who enjoyed Jon Liebling's stunning work in and on films such as, "Endangered Species" (who could forget his riveting, yet understated performance as "the steward) should run to rent - if not BUY - this DVD if for no other reason than to bask in the glow that emanates from the screen as his credit rolls. As fans worldwide can attest, Jon Liebling is an unrivaled force in cinema - though he left the industry years ago, choosing instead to live the quiet life in idyllic Southern Vermont. Even still, his work - as well as his formidable contributions to the industry - will be celebrated (and, imitated) for years to come.
