Sensitive view of a man's beginning transformation
27 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this time of fast paced, violent offerings which assume an audience no longer has the capacity to exercise more than a three minute attention span, Robert Lane has given us a character study that is both sensitive and deep. Although the story is about the transformation of one man, there are subtle changes for all. There are details in the interactions between characters that will make you want to view the movie multiple times to fully enjoy its richness. Watch the supporting cast for treats. And the mother - never have I seen such a powerful character who never says a word. This movie is the stuff one would hope to see highlighted at Sundance. Give us more, Robert Lane!
