Did You Know?


Actor Steven Molony (Alex) is a devout method actor. He immersed himself so deeply into the role of Alex that he found himself having in-character dreams. He also lost seven pounds over the course of production. The cast and crew, having met him on set, realized they had to somewhat remake friends with him after the production, as they found they had become close with the character, and not actually with the actor portraying him.

Alex: If you don't let me out of here with this fucking record player: I swear to God I'll fucking shoot ya!

Brilliant debut - Great fun!
15 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

ATTENTION: I copied this from my Amazon review. I said it well then and still believe it: This movie grabs you at the first scene and doesn't let go. From comedic crime caper to the riveting emotional end, it's a gritty roller coaster of consequences. Knowing that this was Dan Glaser's directorial debut on a shoestring budget (literally), I was amazed to discover two hours of really great entertainment, complete with powerful acting, imaginative montages, and cool camera shots. Most impressive? Steven Molony's exceptional performance in the lead role. He reminds me of a young Christian Bale in both looks, intensity, and charisma. He's definitely got the chops to make it to the top; this film gives us a glimpse of his immense talent. Other main characters delivered strong, believable support for the story. (Yeah, it's full of F-bombs; get over it. You know what rated R means.) All in all, you won't go wrong with this film. I recommend you buy it, watch it again and again, and proudly tell your friends in the future, "I own a copy of Dan Glaser's first film, the one that introduced Steven Molony as a promising new star." Very cool.........
