Gutsy and challenging (though flawed) cinema
30 October 2006 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

In these days of 'safe' cinema, it's great to see a bold director not afraid to take big risks. This is challenging cinema, and though there is nudity and sex, it is never gratuitous. It is intelligent, well-filmed, and with nice music. It's the best performance I've seen from Tom Long.

The consistency of the film wasn't as sharp as it could have been. Colin Friels was (as always) very good, and it would have been good for his role to have been further developed, as his part at the end seemed a little abrupt. The film seemed a little long, not as satisfying as the director's previous film Head On, but well-done nonetheless.

There was something unsettling about this film that I can't quite put my finger on. It has something to do with the look and feel. It seems it was an exploration by the director that didn't completely pay off. Maybe there was an air of unreality – it certainly didn't have the grittiness that pays off in Alkinos Tsilimidos' Em4Jay.
