Amazing diamond in the rough
22 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

This film really deserves to be seen. I saw it at a festival in Oregon but never heard a word about it anywhere else. It's beautifully shot, has great cast, strong direction and an awesome score. I like films that play with genre but don't fall into any one and this film did just that. Maybe that's why nobody knew what to do with it. But the movie has a real unique mood and sensibility. It's funny but creepy , cheeky and totally deadpan. Yeah, it's a little slow at times and could have had a bit more action. Still, so m any low-budget films are cheesy and shlocky but this one is actually really well-directed and features some of the best acting in its class. I watch at least 5 films a week and this one definitely stood out in a good way.
