First I'd like to re-iterate the previous comments, they are spot on. Joe Unger is fabulous.

Indeed the film is a challenge, but I steer away from films that give you everything on a platter, those that leave the viewer with no questions to ask either of himself or the filmmaker's intent.

I caught this one at a film festival where it was hands-down, the best. When it becomes available, I will definitely add Broke Sky to my DVD collection.

It wasn't until about halfway through the film that I realized how powerful and innovative that the music was. It didn't upstage but added an enormous amount of subtle thematic emotion. I'd really like a soundtrack CD.
