Compelling and well-directed
5 December 2004 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Thomas Trail's "Klepto" was a pleasant surprise. It is a fast- paced, tightly plotted character piece that never takes the

conventional path. Meredith Bishop gives a great performance

and constructs a sympathetic character that is always fascinating

to watch. The camera work is frenetic, yet controlled. There is

clearly a vision behind this film. The story kept me guessing until

the end, and did not disappoint. I especially like the fact that every

character in the piece is both dark and sympathetic, which

demonstrates a maturity in the writing and conception of the film. I

recommend this to anyone.
