is a question answered (one of the characters, albeit with a spelling change and no relation to Rand's...)
Derek Vanlint's directorial debut shows us the talent that can come from moving into directing from being a D.P. It shows in ever shot, and a friend of mine in the biz has always said that DP's really "make the movie" anyway.
Frederic Forest is always good, and Hopper was over the top in playing a somewhat "normal" person, even as a cop investigating a horrific series of child murders.
Some people might find the film slow, but I was rapt in every minute, and look forward to more fare from Vanlint.
