26 August 2001 | by (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm a tough sell when it comes to contemporary American films, and have

turned almost exclusively to watching foreign films or classics (ie: loved "Night of the Iguana;" admire Hitchcock), but when my 15 year old grabbed "Shadow Hours" off the shelf I thought I'd give it a shot for the sake of mother\daughter movie night.

Smart writing (a bloody rare attribute), terrific acting, fabulous score and a film noir look--I was hooked. Loved the jump cut gas station scenes, the crazies, the repetition of certain phrases/themes, the progressive descent into urban madness, and, Oh, Lordy, that Moby piece that tied it together at the end.

I've watched it twice, the second time with my husband, who is recommending it to fellow 'good film' afficionados, and so on, and so on...

Interesting to read B'zar Getty's bio. Note the tattoos on his hand in the film - they're the real deal.
