Almost good.,
21 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Not sure what to make of this. I get the sense that something profound was lurking just under the surface but was almost afraid to show itself. The ambivalence could have been better utilized if the teenage-wasteland ambiance wasn't so overemphasized.

One can see the influence of The River's Edge at points, with the sexual nihilism and narcotic bacchanalia, but it lacks that film's amoral centre and fuller characters.The characters seems to be rebelling against nothing specific, while the female lead seems to be on the verge of transcendence from nothing more than suggestion. Her first trip did not show the viewer exactly how or why her attraction to Toad Road is suddenly so visceral.

I was involved and committed but when it was over I walked away, sadly, not wanting more.
