A fantastic Indy suspense flick, with a little something different--
13 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Booster is a truly fantastic Indy suspense flick! Well directed,beautifully shot, with great performances from "Non-Actors." Boston is of course a great city for this kind of movie, and one has to but point the camera at the city to increase production value, but the director here chose a few vantage points and establishing shots that painted a little different picture of our fair city. Of course, the addition Seymour Cassel (a muse of Cassavettes)gives this flick plenty of "Street Cred," but the most standout performance by far was the brother Sean, played by Brian Mcgrail. His character is the lynchpin of the whole thing, and although he didn't have much time on screen, he has the REAL brooding intensity that millions of actors have been trying to fake since Brando. I have the feeling the director and the cast are all going to do well, but I think McGrail is one to watch--
