ONE (2000) **1/2 Kane Picoy, Jason Cairns, Autumn Macintosh, Paul Herman, Ed Lynch, Gabriell Ruvulo, Muhammed Hasan, Willie La Nere. Recently paroled convict Cairns (eerily resembling John Turturro and Christopher Walken) returns to his old neighborhood and while staying with best friend and hot-headed baseball prospect gone to seed garbageman Picoy tries to adapt to a new life by starting all over while falling in love, earning a degree and facing the inevitable his past. Well done by first time filmmaker Tony Barbieri who gives the film a unique look with his camera angles and placement and a novella feeling plotwise.
Only gripe is that it is too short and the ending is abruptly out of sync with the rest of the otherwise attuned debut.
