23 June 2007 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

This film absolutely deserves to find an audience. It's not perfect, but it's a lot more challenging and entertaining than 90 percent of the stuff floating around out there. Joe Unger, an extremely under-appreciated actor, has a terrific role and delivers a performance to match. Most of the cast is solid, including indie favorite Duane Jackson. The movie looks great and the Texas setting couldn't have been filmed better. (It reminds me a lot of a crackerjack Joe Lansdale Texas tale.) A very good, knowing movie that includes a lot of detail that adds depth to the story. The filmmakers know the terrain where their story unfolds and they skillfully capture both the people and the place. Good writing. Good (most of the time) acting. Excellent photography. I recommend this one for anyone looking for something different.
