Amazingly well-done
23 April 2007 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

One of the selections of the 2007 San Diego Gay and Lesbian Film Festival (FilmOut), this film is exceptional. An interesting story, nicely-drawn characters, well-acted, tightly directed. A thoroughly enjoyable film. Everyone involved should be proud of this.

True, there are some details that don't hold up to scrutiny, and a few coincidences, but these are easy to overlook given the overall quality of the work. The score might be a little top-heavy on the drama and suspense, but still fit nicely with the rest of the film.

Probably the weakest acting was that of the homicide detective, who is tentative and unconvincing. The rest of the cast turn in performances that range from acceptable (the female officer) to outstanding (the neighbor).
