Not worth the energy to push the tape in the VCR!
20 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film doesn't even deserve 1 star for a rating. I really enjoyed "Relative Fear" by this director, but this film is a disgrace. Everything is muddled, nothing is surprising, and by the time it was over, my first reaction was "that's it"? Yes, the box cover is really pretty and elusive, but this movie which credits itself as a "mystery" lacks any mystery at all. If there was some big "reveal" towards the end then I must have missed it (or dozed off).

Don't be fooled....It's just BAD movie-making, period!

Go and see any other modern film out there, or a classic film and you will be much happier, I assure you.
