Real People/Sense of Place
10 December 2001 | by (Chattanooga, TN) – See all my reviews

In most modern movies, the setting is a necessity that functions for no other reason than a casual fact. This movie more than anything had a sense of place. It knew where it was and the mentalities of those people, and how their perspectives were shaped by that area. It's polished with the ability to create the place without broadcasting it.

The other aspect that sets this movie apart is it's ability to create real people. It doesn't take cheap outs with the characters. A lesser movie would have readily made the main character a victim of some characteristic movie atrocity - abuse, amnesia, having been attacked, raped, who knows. It's the conclusion I immediately jumped to, knowing full well the modern movie quick explanations. The movie could have made the women of Silver over-the-top men-haters, uneducated hicks needing to be saved, who knows. The truth is tragedy is relative, and it's usually the small things that will eventually wear us down. The fact that this movie is able to convey that without resorting to cheap plot gimmicks is commendable and makes it well worth your time.
