Jacket Theme Masks Substance; Touchstone for Many Emotional Hotspots, 1 March 2008
Author: Stephen Mason from United States

From the title to the critique snippet, the jacket theme, probably intentionally, masks the film's content.

Surreal but with pauses allowed by today's technology, reflection and discussion can put the pieces together.

Weighty issue of firearms and violence handled most appropriately particularly from law enforcement point of view.

Despite my reality, it was difficult to identify with isolation of lead actor.

Excellent proof that Y2K did not thwart either artistic and worthwhile (fill in the blank.)
