Great acting, cool as hell story
28 July 2001 | by (Queens, New York) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the New York International Film Festival, and it totally caught me by surprise. It has one of the most topsy turvy, double-back, switching back twisting storylines I have ever read. We see stories told about a group of people in one community, and the stories are told one at a time, until halfway through when they start to blend back into one another until everything is wrapped up neatly in a bow by the end.

The dialogue is really intense and hip and although I didn't recognize any of the actors, it has some of the best acting I have seen in an independent film.

Its funny and dark and needs multiple viewings to try and figure out all the connections and turns in it. I haven't been able to find this movie at Blockbuster, so hopefully this means there's a chance it might get an arthouse run so I could see it again on the big screen.

Great music and sound, too.
