Fantastic movie
25 January 2002 | by (Baltimore, MD) – See all my reviews

Doug Atchinson deserves much more notice than indie filmmakers like Kevin Smith, Ed Burns, and Tarantino. Here he has created a film with great casting, acting, dialogue, plot, and pacing.

What really makes this film gripping is DeGood's incredibly believable portrayal of a lonely, awkward, yet likeable young man.
