I think Matthew Chapman didn't do everything what he could to do for this movie. There really were some careless moments in the movie. Anyway, I liked Jacob's mysterious voice and that music which was wrapped in a shroud of mystery. Plot is not perfect, but it isn't very bad. Personally, I expected better film. Realistically, two or three times I threw a glance to the clock to see how much time of movie left. It's not a feature of very good film, as You all perfect know. Selected music was good, it fitted for the plot and film's mood. I didn't like at all one moment of the movie. That moment is when Simon Fleischer found Donnie's body. I didn't like it because Dan Hedaya was acting terribly and lamely! That's what I meant when I said that there were some careless moments. Second moment was when Laine Fleischer knew that it's over between her and Jacob. Other scenes were quite good. One more thing. Johnny Depp (don't forget that it was only third his role) was acting very good. It's sad, because there were only a few scenes with him. But it's not a problem. In spite of the fact that I said I expected better film, I tried to find the answers anyway. Indisputable fact is - the idea of the film is still good. There were quite a few twist. The last thing I want to say - Eric Roberts was acting surprisingly! I considered "How much points I have to give?" and "What does it mean "Slow burn"?". Now I have the answers: 1. Six points. 2. I won't say, because watch this film and then think about it. After a while probably You'll understand it.
