Beautiful and haunting
30 December 2005 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at a special screening and I have to say that I wasn't expecting much. Boy was I surprised.

What I got was an atmospheric murder mystery that turns the genre on its head. Dark and moody. It reminds me of movies from the 70's, edgy and raw with emotions. You get to see a side of Brooklyn that you rarely see. It just feels authentic. The acting is really powerful. The Nephew and the Woman were solid. I've never seen these guys anywhere before but I am sure that I will see them again. I especially like the interrogation scenes and all its shadows. It's really one of those films that stays with you long after you've left the theater.
