Difficult to sit through, but highly worth it.
12 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw this film at the Indiefest and it was shocking. I never want to see it again. That certainly does not mean I think this film should not be seen. It is extremely powerful and at times very difficult to sit through. The SF Chronicle said it was "a hard-hitting look at suicide"....I couldn't agree more, unless they said it was the most uncomfortable and exhausting look at suicide that has been captured and put on screen in many years. I'll be honest, some of the audience seemed to hate the film based on its language and subject matter, but more power to Bedard for showing something that some people couldn't handle. It's a cool film. It's tough, but highly worth it.
