16 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

This was probably the most promising film to come from the world of independent cinema in that year before the millennium that was 1999. It was cut with such pep and verve as to bely its low-budget roots. The sublime grain of the expanded super 16mm stock just blows anything that the new indi world of digital has put out to-date.

Although one can see just why the acting 'talent' in this one went away, it is nothing-short of criminal that the writing/directing/producing talent of Messrs. White and Calver is seemingly lost to us. And so if this was their first effort, the world would have been a better place on an artistic level if somebody out there had stood up and noticed and given them a chance at an encore.
