Distaste for the human condition, all brought to us by Neil LaBute
With a better cast and an even more disturbing group of characters, Neil LaBute failed to disappoint in his sophomore effort. Laced with dark dialogue and realistic reactions conducive to the actions of the characters, this film actually surpasses In The Company of Men in regards to the evil that is known as the human condition. With some great performances by the likes of Jason Patric, Catherine Keener, Ben Stiller, Amy Brenneman and Aaron Eckhart, this film really sucks you into this unsatisfied world of betrayal and sex. A film only Todd Solondtz couldn't have made (if anyone else could have made it).
