Grand Film, Small Scale
27 June 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The look and feel of this film is that of live theatre. The minimalist approach in set and costume as well as simple, yet dramatic lighting, create an intimacy and immediacy which accents character development and showcases each actor's individual talents. Beautifully written, directed and acted, it's worth a look, and a look again. Most notable is the character of Law, portrayed by William Fichtner, whose electric intensity keeps the nerves raw and the eyes riveted. Kudos to Kevin Spacey for a deliciously original directorial debut.
