This is an interesting crime film by freshman director Jeff Santo. The narrative is of less importance than the technique, which involves pace-related risk-taking. Expressionism is nicely developed here, with the manner in which time is handled being consistent with the script. The slowness of the scenes might be off-putting to some, but a directorial point of view is established and well-met. The acting, particularly by Heinle, Hunter and Blondell, maintains the author's focus on style. There are some red herrings, but not enough to mar this little-known attempt at creative cinema.
