Brilliant Film
1 March 2004 | by (Detroit) – See all my reviews

Brilliant feels inadequate to describe this film. It is beautifully filmed, superbly edited, and amazingly acted.

Basically, it's a film focusing on four brothers, with a shared history of alcoholism and abuse, inflicted upon them, and by them, and their unexpected coming together for a night of celebration, freedom, and finality, that quickly turns on it's heel. Gale Harold and Blake Gibbons will take your breathe away. As raw and intense as it is, there is still plenty of humor, though at first, you'll be hesitant to laugh, but do, because there is plenty to laugh at. When Jack says "what's the difference between pink and purple? The grip!" It really is okay to exhale, and laugh.... It's a real film that doesn't end with some pretty satin bow at the end, but makes you think, and makes you want to see it over and over again....
