Do you have any reason for wanting me on this?
Like I said: you're a humanist, liberal Jew, so you gotta do your very best.
Oh, yes, that's right... 'Course. I forgot.

This film I expected to be an excellent indie flick, but what I got was complete disappointment. This movie could have been summed up in 10 minutes, but instead dragged on for an hour and a half. There is at most only 2 scenes worth watching, and even they are nothing new to cinema,have already been seen and done better in other films such as American History X and Romper Stomper. I think the acting may have been OK, but the storyline was weak, and there was nowhere near enough material to make this story last. Overall, I advise that you only recommend this to someone film if you wish to play a cruel practical joke on them, in which case you tell them its a great film and to watch it.
