Did You Know?


According to an interview he gave to the New York Times in 2010, this movie was made during the middle of Wes Bentley's decade-long, extremely serious addiction to cocaine and heroin. He said in that interview that he only accepted any movie roles during that time so that he would have money to buy enough drugs. See more »

Mickey Gravatski: Can you stop?
James Lemac: What are you asking me, if I can be cured? A cure is inconceivable to them, because the crimes are too unforgivable. They simply want people like us dead. But death doesn't end evil. It merely sets it free.
Mickey Gravatski: Are you evil?
James Lemac: If I choose to take responsibility for what I've done.
Mickey Gravatski: Do you?
James Lemac: Do you?

Great Cult Classic
21 March 2008 | by (Kissimmee, FL) – See all my reviews

This will definitely become a cult classic! It's non-stop tension, which makes it a great thriller, but it also has strong philosophical messages. It poses questions, makes us think. The script is so well thought out that you have to go back and watch the film a few times to realize all the intricate layers that writers Dunn and Borkowski have woven in. It's a disturbing emotional and psychological journey that gives incredible depth to its characters. The film draws us in, makes us questions ourselves – 'what would we do in this situation?' I was thinking about it long after it ended and how many movies do this, especially on the independent level? Witty, smart dialogue, great acting, interesting direction (and one of my favorite character actors in Beth Grant)…Not only will this film hold up over time, but I think people will look back and appreciate it even more as Dunn/Borkowski go on to make bigger films...
