Most compelling film in years
17 September 2001 | by (East Hampton, New York) – See all my reviews

I can't hope to match the eloquence of the other commentors, but to try: The is the best, most compelling film I have seen in years. In fact, it is the only film I've seen in years which I feel deserves the effort of comment. And to think I almost missed it -- I inherited it when a friend closed his video store.

I lived downtown in NYC for 20 years where I had my own bouts with obsession and addiction, have spent time hopelessly ill on the LIE, now live in East Hampton where I have enjoyed the "hypocrisy" of Thanksgiving at a table full of friends and neighbors and have occasionally flung myself into a freezing ocean. I can safely say that this incredibly talented filmmaker and his fellow artists have captured it all beyond words -- which is I guess what film is supposed to be all about. The female lead is beyond exceptional.

On Saturday I asked a film producer neighbor to check out this movie and tell me why these people aren't famous.
