A hypnotic slice of life with pure heart
18 May 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Despite its scruffy edges (or maybe because of them), this little

movie has so much personal vision and heart and insight---it truly

brings characters alive who stay with you over the years. It's very

heart-tugging without being mawkish. Steve Buscemi is absolutely

brilliant in it---he's so good ti sometimes dwarfs the scenes in

which he is not present, and yet when he does scenes with

another actor, that actor is always much better alongside him. The

film is not a polished Hollywood production, so don't expect it to

look like a million bucks. But what it lacks in that area it more than

makes up for with honesty, wit and humor. I absolutely love this

movie and recommend it.
