Did You Know?


Ansel Faraj screened for select cast members the films The Big Sleep (1946), Kiss Me Deadly (1955), The Lady from Shanghai (1947), Double Indemnity (1944), The Unsuspected (1947), Angel Heart (1987), and The Ninth Gate (1999), before filming. He also forbade them from watching any previous Mabuse film because he said that he did not want anyone to be influenced by them, since this film was an original story. However, Derek Mobraaten went ahead and watched Fritz Lang's trilogy anyway. See more »

Thumbs Up
23 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film merged old school acting techniques with new film making! Strong characters, great script and an amazing score are among the best features of this film. Ansel shows that with determination and a strong cast - his ideas can come alive even on a limited budget.

Favorites in the film are Jerry Lacy and the late Linden Chiles with effortless, natural performances by both that only comes from years of experience. Strong supporting roles by David Graham, Julian Grant and John C. Smith.

Slow dialogue exchanges between Nathan Wilson and Bahia Garrigan made for lengthy scenes, I had wished for quicker delivery. Though the two had moments that showcased their talents.

A lot going on in this film both visually and within the plot. The film was easy to follow, script was well written and there were no loop holes for me. Climax scene between Lacy and Wilson was very well done.

I enjoyed the film; that being said I would have enjoyed it more and given it a better rating if the dialogue pace during some of the scene had not been so slow (lengthy).

Thumbs up to Ansel for directing a terrific cast of all ages. He really showed his professionalism with this film. People don't realize he does EVERYTHING on his projects: writes, produces, edits, visual effects, casts, edits again, directs, cameraman, edits again and delivers each film from his soul! 21 years old! Most 21 year old's are in college trying to find a major or are on the beach surfing all morning. Ansel eats, sleeps, drinks and breathes movies. Its in his DNA and in this film it shows. He should be proud.
