A must see!!!
28 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw Over the GW yesterday, and loved it. It was accurate and detailed. It made me laugh, choked me up, and turned my gut. There were a lot of subtle details, like group speak and rituals, I swear I was really in group with these characters. The way Dr. Hiller was portrayed was awesome! He would get that homicidal maniac look in his eyes while yelling at or beating around a druggie kid in group (we all remember that look, right?) and then 2 seconds later, tell that same kid, "I love you" in a nice, soft voice. PSYCHO! There is a great scene where Dr. Hiller receives his mail-order degree in anthropology. Another where Tony's dad (played brilliantly by the director's real father) has a one-on-one confrontation with Dr. Hiller, the kind that each one of us wish we could have had.

After the film, there was a short Q&A with Nick (writer and director) and some of the cast where other viewers expressed shock as well. I have always thought it would be difficult to portray the real horror of that place in writing or on film, but this film does it. Nick, I think you have done very well. Thank you for making this film and sharing it with the world. Good luck to you in all your future film endeavors.
