In the True Indy Film Spirit:
4 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is available now on Netflix and I HIGHLY recommend it. The visual look and acting and writing all work together in a cool way. Distinct and interesting characters, somewhat profound and poignant comments about human nature, and of course the unexpected plot twists. This movie has a lot going on. Be sure to consider it's a fairly low-budget flick, so you don't get the explosions and all that, but the story, characters, and overall quality shine through all that. A must see for anyone serious about film. And especially, an inspiring piece of work for any aspiring filmmaker. Oh, and don't forget to pay attention to Don Epifanio and his "partner."
