Great First Feature
15 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There were a few moments in this film that I didn't buy (I won't say what--no spoilers here), but that's what happens when you take risks on screen.

Tone-wise, I'd say this film was like American Beauty, but done much better. There were still some over-the-top moments, but unlike the Alan Ball/Sam Mendes mega-hit, parts of this film feel genuine. The script was juggling many nuanced through-lines, and did so surprisingly well.

Solid acting. Nice control of the camera--and the HD-to-35mm blowup looked pretty darn nice.

I'd like to see more from this director.
