Loved every minute. I wish it got more run time on cable.
15 May 2001 | by (Indianapolis, Indiana) – See all my reviews

I thought the film was wonderful, the way the story progressed without ever bogging down, and the creative narrative asides were fantastic. I thought it especially clever that at the lowest points in the film, the director/writers/producers threw in the funniest parts i.e., the 'Russian Roulette' scene and the 'talking cat' scene. It, as well as the creative use of sped-up film in the driving scenes helped the story along and kept up the pace of the film. I think this would particularly appeal to anybody that likes artistic films, and enjoys watching the work of someone who isn't afraid to be creative.

Besides, Kelly MacDonald as Pia is hot.
