"Façade" is what independent cinema should be.
12 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Façade" is what independent cinema should be. The characters are highly original and the ending is extremely intense. The subject matter dealt with is a gruesome topic, but they really pulled it off. I highly recommend this film. I can't believe they made it for $14,000! This film redefines the word INDIE. I was lucky enough to see the film at the SF Indiefest and the audience there loved it. The character of Tits was just so funny and a necessary relief for the drama that builds up like a runaway train. This film shows a hell of a lot of promise for the director and all of the main actors. I can't wait to see the next one. Hopefully they'll bring it up to the city.
