A Horrible Film Experience
25 July 2003 | by (Long Island NY) – See all my reviews

I had the misfortune of seeing this snoozer at the recent Stony Brook Film Festival In NY. More people left midway through this film than all the others I attended. (FYI, I was at 95% of the films)

From the cheap and misleading ploy of the opening shot to the final resolution, there was nothing to raise this above a mediocre student film.

The plot trudged forward at a glacial pace with scene transitions used mainly to pull the viewer back from the doze they were slipping into. The music was used to soporific effect through repetition, much to the dismay of the audience.

It was poorly acted and muddy. The second tier characters had stonger film presences than the main characters. Raven, the romantic interest and Chuck the Boss were the only memorable performances.

In all, a film to view only if sleep is evading you. Steer clear if you are a fan of Film Noir or suspense films. It will only leave you with an infuriating 2 hour loss from your life.
