Needs A Fix
6 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those interesting, but unsatisfying, Movies with a very short running time that seems pasted together and released without much faith or confidence. There just isn't enough time to develop the many characters and things unfold with a choppy and vague exposition.

The performances are all fine and the drug addicted cop played by Claire Forlani is superb. Lauren Bacall is also quite believable as an elderly lady with wit and dignity. The film is let down only in it's inability to flesh out the story and deliver it with coherent and cognitive observations.

What is here is pretty compelling but what is left out is baffling. It plays like an unfinished throw-away or a mangled manuscript that needs a fix. Too bad.
