This was a movie that I was glued to and the time flew by, because it seems like you go on a 'journey' with this character and you end up at the end in time to look back on it and think 'Wow, so that's what it was about' or 'That's what that meant'.
The cinematography is quite beautiful, I like the earthly colours of the basement photos and Sizemore's apartment, so suggestive of steadiness, calm and control, contrasting nicely with the turmoil of Sizemore's characters inner life.
The ending with the death speech is downright cheesy and disappointed me. This film doesn't need such cheap trickery to make its point.
On the whole, well worth watching but parts of it are a bit too Hollywood.
A solid 8 out of 10 for me.
