A fabulous example of engaging, to-the-point movie-making
2 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a movie that puts the "average" Hollywood picture costing 500x as much, to shame. Sharp, twisted, interesting writing, an intriguing premise, a twisted story that keeps you in your seat, believable dialogue (and how many films can you say that about?) and interesting actors ranging from good to FABULOUS. The sound, lighting and general production were more than adequate to tell the story. How many mainline Hollywood companies could tell such an interesting story, if limited to one room (well, two rooms!) I'm just a movie fan, and I can say that if I had a few million $ to invest in a film, these people would get it. Congratulations, creators, cast and crew. If there's any justice, you'll have $10m to do your next picture.
