Wow! Definitely one of the best!
24 January 2000 | by (Neenach, CA) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at an International Film Festival in LA about 4 years ago. I still remember it's intensity, and how captivated I was throughout the film. That's saying a lot, considering how many films I saw during that month, and how little publicized this particular film was. Although the film hasn't changed my life, it has definitely made a lasting impression.

Ever since then, I've been wanting to see it again, but could never find it.

I highly recommend watching this film if you get a chance. You won't forget it (or regret it).
