Trivia

Director Mark Tapio Kines ran out of funds shortly after filming wrapped in August 1997, leaving him unable to complete post-production. Thanks to his experience as a web designer he was able to create an official website for the film ("forcor.com") to spark interest among the Internet community. A year later the director had received $90,000 in investments from complete strangers (including fans of principal star Melanie Lynskey) and a further $60,000 from friends and acquaintances, enabling the film to finally be completed. The makers of The Blair Witch Project later employed a similar technique of using the Internet to market their film. See more »

Amazing job, related to the characters, makes you think, wonderful music!
30 December 1999 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I've had the pleasure of seeing this film twice now and am looking forward to a third. Mark has done an amazing job interweaving two stories about real people experiencing real dilemmas in life. He avoids the stereotypical Hollywood glitz, glamour, happy endings and tragic hero deaths to instead create a film that will leave you pondering about the fate of all the characters long after you leave the theatre because they are YOU! Everyone who sees this film will be able to pick out at least one character and say "Wow! That's ME!!" Because of this, my one word of caution would be that it can be a very emotionally draining film, but still extremely satisfying because it makes you think and feel. It's impossible to give away the ending because there isn't one, just as in real life. Mark leaves that up to you. So when you've had enough of the special fx movies and are ready for a film that plays to all your other senses, come check this one out.

The musical score is one of the best I've heard in a long time!
