The most important film I've seen this year!
3 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

If Nick wanted to portray the family breakdown caused by the program, he did a great job accomplishing this. any more on this would be spoiling it.

Editing: Although I could probably grumble about the EDL (for a few shots... *ducks*), the editing was generally very good.

Music: Far beyond what most indie films could dream of.

Acting: Some of it wasn't acting. Nick's father was in the film. He did a fantastic job. Nick was lucky. Many of i'm sure would wish "darn.. I wish my dad would have done that"... The cast was well chosen and I can't really think of a point where the acting broke down.

Doctor Hiller ("any relation ... purely coincidental" ) chose his name by combining a certain 20th century dictator's name with that of a certain non-factual character. He knew the storyline revolved around the final days of a program and thought Hitler's last moments in a besieged bunker (but still as stubborn and charismatic) would be a fitting analogy. His performance was ... stunning. The way the trailer is edited does not do his performance justice. Few survivors could even him in the eye after the movie. Dr. Hiller had no idea his character was (purely by coincidence) real when he was playing it. His next role, coincidentally, happens to be in a slasher film, playing a psychotic doctor who abuses his patients.

I wish i could devote paragraphs to all the cast I talked to but I can't remember the names (sorry... bad with names). Nick's character did a great job, as did his sister. I talked for a while with the actor who played his old-comer. Nice guy in person actually. Pretty much all the actors were disgusted, shocked and appalled, knowing that the film was not only both factual but also autobiographical.

Summary: Buy the darn DVD when it is released. It's very very good. My dad learned a lot from it (thankfully, he was open-minded enough to come). Thank you Nick. He now realizes far more than I had hoped he would... Thank you.
