Director Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, etc) has described Michael Parks as the "greatest living American actor" and this film shows why. Parks' performance is altogether staggering and the kind of thing that, were this a big name, big money film -- rather than a low budget Indie -- would get him an Oscar nomination. And the rest of the acting in this film -- which features veterans like Olivia Hussey (Romeo and Juliet) and Wes Studi (The Last of the Mohicans, The New World) as well as some new faces like Aaron Duffey --is uniformly good. Interestingly, there's a short but exciting performance from James Parks -- Michael's son -- as a bully in a bar. This is also a movie that can easily provide fodder for a few good hours of conversation when it's over.
