Visually interesting, but that's about it.
9 March 2008 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Poor direction, writing and acting offset the surprisingly good cinematography displayed by this indie. The Deep South is certainly evoked by the visuals, but the amateurish performances nearly destroy the atmosphere.

The director inadequately plays with "time" - to the point the plot is rendered quite confusing by the closing shots. Unnecessary "sidetracks" are thrown in for absolutely no reason, and highlighted actions often go nowhere.

I feel fairly confident that I know what happens during the course of the film, and if I do understand it correctly, it is somewhat simplistic and predictable. Plus, the director gave away the conclusion in the opening shot.
