Speechless, 17 June 2008
Author: (xman97) from United States

I saw the premiere of South Of Heaven at Cinevegas and stayed for the Q&A afterwards. I thought the film started off kind of awkward, but after about 15 minutes I was hooked. By the end of the film I was blown away. This thing was amazing and left me and the rest of the audience speechless. (there were very little questions asked at the Q&A) I have never seen a film that left me without anything to ask at the end. This is one of those films that the more time that goes by...the closer to perfect I realize it was. I can't wait to see it again! I definitely recommend this film to anyone who wants a breath of fresh air at the theater. It is very original and I can't wait to see what Vara comes up with next.
