Goofs

After the Kray family meeting at the Waldorf near the film's beginning, Jack Kray emerges onto the street, and into an angry gay rights protest, with dark hair which he doesn't sport in any other scene. It's unexplained, and not a flashback because Anthony climbs onto his car as part of the protest. See more »

Quotes

Henry Kray: [to Jack] What am I part of, Jack? An issue? Don't you get it? Issues are what they use to divide us. Sexual orientation, race, gender... All issues that don't actually pertain to anyone except those being cut out and thrown away by the issue. Does it really matter to some farmer in Kansas whether or not two men get married in Vermont? But see, they need us to choose sides. They create these issues for us to cling to, to grasp at. You know they separate us into these divisions: Black, White, Gay...

Creative but Tecnically Flawed
11 March 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

So, the hand cam got on my nerves rather quickly.

Spent the first part of the movie trying to figure out what kind of film I was watching. The film is obviously set up to be a "worlds collide" situation. Perhaps I was expecting that those 2 worlds, or their separateness, would have been better defined from the beginning.

The whole project comes off like an amateur attempt judging by the lack of polish. The lighting is crap. The camera work is distracting. The casting is good. The dialogue is effective but the plot jumped around too much for me to follow. Makes me feel like I have A.D.D.

The technical flaws kept me out of the film and I was left with an overpowering sense of watching a film rather than experiencing it.
