Extremely Bad
28 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

Really awful... Have enjoyed watching Mr. Haas grow from child star to mature actor. His normal 'underplaying' normally works fine. His superb work in "johns" should have earned him some mainstream acclaim... but Oscar did not focus.

Almost all of the previous reviews mirror my feelings regarding this film. Cinematography is excellent, but completely wasted on a poor script. I think I could have written it better.

I am watching the film as I write this - maybe 80 minutes in - and I will be switching channels now...

Sorry... but due warning this masterwork is a waste of time.
