Loved this film!
30 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had no idea what to expect when I was invited to see this film. Wow, I was pleasantly surprised!! Its a tragic but inspiring story that takes you along on the intense journey of following your art to the dark place it may lead, and of the ways this effects your life, relationships and the art you produce. Beautifully shot, well written and unpredictable. The performances are raw and open which fulfills the story beautifully. Also full of unexpected (and fantastic) cameo appearances.

I don't want to spoil the surprises, but I will say that everyone should see this film. I can't wait to see it again.
