Worth the Praise.
15 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first thing that really struck me as I watched this movie was how well placed the music was. I remember watching the opening scenes and every time a piece of music would start, all I could think was "That is PERFECT!"

As the movie progresses, you can tell that a lot of care and patience was put into this. The director did a great job of establishing scenes and telling the story by simply lingering on certain shots just long enough. There was no heavy-handedness here. Whatever wasn't said in the dialogue, was clearly stated by what was being seen.

I heard this film won the highest honor at Indie Fest in Anaheim, CA. After watching it, I can see why. It's been a while since I've seen an independent movie made this well, that wasn't churned out by a big studio's "independent" branch, with a big star attached. These guys know what they're doing and they've set the bar pretty high for their next film.
