Quotes

Jake: You tell people you steal and they never really trust you after that. I like it better when people don't trust me. I like it better when people don't like me.Then at least I know what to expect. It's a forgone conclusion; then I know not to need them.

Saw it at Sundance--Voted it 4 on a 1 to 5 scale.
26 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

By the end I liked this film very much. Initially I was a bit put off by some technical lapses. It was hard to understand the dialog at times, and there were some confusing juxtapositions of scenes. These were not major distractions, however.

It seemed a believable portrayal of a teenage boy who had failed to attach to his mother as a child. I appreciated the non-judgmental approach of the writer/director. By allowing us to understand the context of the behavior of each of the characters, she facilitates us seeing them in a sympathetic light. I enjoyed the film. I appreciated the opportunity to participate in a Q&A session with the director after the movie. I hope the file can be viewed by a wide audience.
