great movie! Very underrated
7 August 2005 | by rebshankirSee all my reviews

first off, I am not a jessica alba fan, so I really could care less that she is in it. she does not "save" the movie in the 30 seconds she is in it, as most morons will claim. she is only 14 in it for God's sake. I really love this movie, and you really have to appreciate the art and direction of the film. England, Mandylor, and Wirth give great performances, and they continue to be three of the most underrated actors of the last 15 years. good ending that is mysteriously refreshing, and it leaves you with the feeling that knowing more would spoil the point of the film. Audie England is terrific as usual, and Fairchild gives a small cameo. great movie all around. A+
