Enjoyable but missing something!
17 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Like Chouse1-1 I also stumbled across this film following an interest in Maynard James Keenan from Tool. I enjoyed this short film and I agree that the premise is great. For a short movie it covers what I feel is a 'big' story remarkably well. The performances are excellent, especially Asner and Keenan, and Brad Wilk does a good job in the lead role. The visions that Wilk's character suffers carry well on the screen thanks to some great direction, but its these visions that concern me somewhat.I cant say too much without giving away the end but I feel that explanations are not only not given, but not even considered, (you'll see what I mean). I feel the outcome was slightly predictable but this didn't ruin the overall movie. I am not one to demand explanations for movie curiosities but sometimes I feel some crucial scenes get forgotten about. I urge people to get hold of this movie and give it a go. Despite my concerns it is a great film and did hold me captivated. I do also feel that Keenan could have a great future in film (though not at the risk of ending Tool).
