strange but brilliant
26 March 2004 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland) – See all my reviews

when i first heard about this film, i worked in a video shop. it came in with a bunch on big name films and it never really appealed to me, it somehow completely escaped my attention that Jonathan Jackson was in it. The Film centres round Max (jj) and his fight to feel free, He is a hockey player (his first love) but also an aspiring painter. his mum wants him to paint, but he doesn't want to live the life that his mum never got to live. he meets Molly (Carly Pope) and she introduces him to her world, where by using drugs she can feel free. Max becomes hooked on class A drugs, and his whole world begins to fall down around him, he looses everything he worked for. he gets kicked off the hockey team and he feels like his mum has given up on him, and he eventually looses Molly. This film was brilliant, class A acting, by all involved. i would say that it is a must see.

Happy viewing
