Julian carried the film
18 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The overall acting was horrible, but it was completely worth watching because Austin Pendleton's portrayal of Julian was BRILLIANT and his performance single-handedly carried the entire project from beginning to end. I would LOVE to work with him again--more directly.

After watching it, I can't believe I never paid Mr. Pendleton much attention. It's funny the talents we overlook on their way up. After more research, I found that he's been in tons of films that I've seen and simply never noticed...It makes me want to go back and watch them all again to see what my problem was...or if he's just gotten that much better over the years.

Wow...if he had several other really great actors on this project, it would have been quite a heck of a ride! This was an AWESOME delivery of Julian for the viewers to really dig into what's left of the film....
