A strangely moving look at our mortality and how we deal with it., 11 December 2005
Author: Fenris Fil from Brighton, England

Pretty decent independent film. Some acting is better then others but overall the quality is high and the production is pretty reasonable for such a project too, with some of the more artistic scenes (images and music) being quite moving.

The two cops aren't very believable as cops but everyone is believable enough as people and that seems to be what the movie is about. People and mortality. So pretty much true to the title (with a touch of apathy thrown in for a bonus). In many ways the film doesn't go anywhere, but it is about people and not events so the journey is much more inwards.

This obviously isn't Hollywood (despite many of the actors being people you'd not be surprised to see in a Hollywood film), so there is an absence of "polish", but don't let that put you off. It's good to see a film that is actually American and not Hollywood American (if you see what I mean). I can't speak for how well it reflects real life in America as I'm not from that country (and I've never even been to New York), but to an outsider at least it does feel more genuine.

This film can currently be watched for free at Mo-Freaks web site (along with a few others). Worth a viewing IMHO.
