very good!
6 November 2000 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised when I watched this movie. Emilio Estevez has produced a movie that is both interesting and visually creative. I liked the cinematography...different and totally appropriate for this movie. And, Charlie did a truly fantastic job as Artie Mitchell! Especially as he moves further into the world of drugs and alcohol addition. I was really amazed at Charlie's acting ability on this one. Emilio was also very good in his role as Jim Mitchell. Charlie and Emilio...you've produced a fantastic film! Very impressive!
