A good little treat
8 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As an avid movie collector myself, and a huge fan of indie films, this movie kept my attention and was interesting to watch. If you're the type that sits down to watch a movie to be entertained, this movie might, or might not, do it for you. But if you're the type that sits down to watch a movie because you're intrigued with everything that goes into making movies (not just the script, not just the acting and not just the way it looks on your screen. But the editing, the directing, the cinematography and so on) I think you'll find this one as quite the little treat.

It has a good mix of both dramatic moments and comical moments and the best part was how bizarre those moments came together. It's definitely not a dark comedy or even a "dramady". But rather it's more like a story about possible evilness with funny parts in it.

The actors in it did a brilliant job. I got caught up in the characters and it was well worth my time sitting to the very end!
