Wow.
3 January 2009 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I recently saw this when it came out at the Laemmle. I have to say, not bad at all! For a low budget flick, the filmmakers really put a lot of creative effort to bring it to life. I was impressed with Patricia Rae and Vincent Pastore. Howard Nash did a great job as the guy with burned hands, holding his own against veteran actor John Heard. The director, whose this is his first feature, put together an ambitious effort, especially given the cast and the beautiful shots of New York City. I see he has another film on the horizon called Chasing the Green, looking forward to that. Oh, and there's the score too. It complements this film from beginning to end. I highly recommend people see this film, you won't be disappointed. Thanks for listening.
