Tense, edgy drama ... soaked in mystery
22 July 2003 | by (Stony Brook , New York) – See all my reviews

Nicely paced drama with tense to intense moments. Excellent casting and location make for superb ingredients of an unfolding rural mystery. The human conditions of broken dreams, empathy, greed, and love play major roles in fleshing out the characters brought together in this small place, in this small moment ... in time.

The major characters of Robert, Molly, and Rae flow downstream in increasing torrents of emotional whitewater, as jutting rocks of sex, murder, and deceitful suspense reveal themselves. Nice "Hitchcock-tonian" touch applied with a goateed Daniel Baldwin playing the shrewd small-town Mayor. [ What better way to accentuate a drama/mystery than applying a 'lil Daniel .... with those piercing blue eyes !?! ]

In my opinion, the climax was a bit "watered down" , but as in Life ... all is not as we might have hoped for , but as we have wrought , going up... only .... to the edge .

Good move by the producers to change the title to the present one from the former ... "Wicked Season" . Vive la Canadiens ! Bringing us all .... to the Waters Edge ....
