Promising concept held back by indie credentials..
17 July 2008 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

Fitfully involving, despite some good ideas and a decent script exploring some darkly comic moral ambiguities...

I recognize its independent origins, but the bland lensing and terrible musical score really did not help. Ben Siegler's impressive performance deserves mention. Other supporting cast members were uneven at best, tho i did guiltily enjoy Rodney Eastman's drug-dealer character.

Although it presents an intriguing mystery, and is inventively told via jumps in time, the movie seemed to progress without generating any real suspense at all. Paring down some of the exposition (as well as some predictable, over-long exchanges) and drawing out the more important plot developments would probably have given the film a much more engaging rhythm and created a more visceral drama..
