This story is about a bank robbery. It doesn't contain much violence; it is more like an art movie. However, it is not so well done. It has many flaws.
For example, when the guy ran out of gas, he walked to the Santa's mystery hole store. When the owner gave him the gas tank, he didn't even pay for it; he just grabbed and walked away. The owner didn't even ask for the money. And at the end, when the same guy died from wound bleeding, his right hand was resting on the chair, which was higher than his elbow. The blood on his hand looks as if it was red paint. And it should be common sense that fluids, such as blood, never climb upward. But in this film, the blood someone didn't drop down to the floor, instead the blood climbed from his arm to your hand.
I think that I have seen Colm in one of the English film. I am surprised that in this film, he speaks perfect American English.
Kevin Zegers' eyes are mesmerizing. There are only those few people that you are watching, and this entire film is like a fantasy story, you know that it can't be true, but somehow you want to watch it till the end. The music is very artful, or maybe they are just so subtle that I didn't even notice. The whole setting appears to be out of the world.
