I Did not enjoy this film despite repeated attempts to watch it, and the fact that I really wanted to like it. I was frustrated by some of the far-fetched and unrealistic characters and scenes, I thought the protagonist was very difficult to relate to and ended up shutting the TV off after the scene at the vet clinic when the dog was injured. I think that scene completely missed whatever the director's intent was (with me anyways) and appeared cruel and sickening. Some parts of the movie are not bad, but it was one of the more difficult and awkward films I've seen in a long time. The protagonist's employer is unrealistically abusive and his friend Lucas is pretty hard to believe as well.
