Pretty good movie... without an ending
26 November 2013 | by (dallas, tx) – See all my reviews

Another one of those haunting, slow-paced indie films that really feels like it has something to say... until you realize it doesn't. The reason it's slow-paced is that it has nowhere to go, and it's just wasting time while it tries to figure itself out. And it fails.

Really good performances, everyone looks right and does an excellent job with almost no script to work from. It goes to show you how far some haunting music and good performances will take you.

Fading to black is not an ending, filmmakers. Leaving it up to the audience is not an ending, either.

Not a bad movie... it looks good, and keeps you engaged... until it randomly ends. Really frustrating that the filmmakers would go through all this and not even bother to know how their story ends. It feels like they probably just ran out of money, and stopped whenever the film ran out.

Overall, a waste. Another indie director that can't be bothered to make a whole movie.
