Good film but confusing
26 November 2006 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

I liked the movie...well done, good acting for sure, but the story is very confusing. I felt as if the end left me hanging and trying to figure out about the stones, and who was protecting him. I really wish the ending had been more final. Overall, I am glad I viewed it, though I don't think with such a great story that they needed to be so extreme with the sex, sex can be hinted at without showing it so graphically. Watching this with my elder parents, as we are Jewish and were very interested in the story, was rather embarrassing with the sex scenes. On the other hand, they were somewhat necessary to show what kind of guy he was, but as I said, that can be shown without the entire sex scene. I am not a prude, sex scenes do not bother me, but it made the movie unwatchable for older people. My mom had me scan through these scenes and they loved the rest.
