A most watchable introduction to Mr Crudup
18 February 2002 | by (Calgary, Alberta) – See all my reviews

I bought this DVD on the strength of seeing Billy Crudup in an early role.

I have seen and liked Adrienne Shelly in a previous Hal Hartley film and thought that she, Crudup and Schulze (with who I am the least familiar, but no less impressed) all performed well in this indie ensemble. Amanda Peet also features in a minor early role.

The story is well worn, but the pace, style, music and slow, lazy intimacy with which we are drawn into the characters makes this a very watchable movie. Billy Crudup obviously started out as he meant to continue and this film stands out as a suitably charismatic beginning, without any signs of hallmark timidity for this actor's first feature.

If you like short-form, no-frills, character-driven drama, rent or buy this one today!
