David J. Bonner,
This movie made a very strong impression on me. It amazed me to see the other reviewer smashing it to smithereens. Clearly he/she did not get the point of the movie: the strange bond of twins, jealousy, betrayal. I found it profoundly moving and deeply sad. I highly recommend it for those who are interested in character development and not a splashy trashy film. The two brothers were extremely well played; the violence between the two of them seemed to indicate an unspoken attraction between the two of them. What is interesting that until it is made clear that the two are brothers, one could easily assume that they are lovers. The people they encounter on their journey serve only as catalysts to reinforce the depth of their strange bond.
