Wow. Great movie. - 7 of 10
27 April 2003 | by deadsenatorSee all my reviews

This is a really good movie. I mean that. Great acting, dialogue, and full bodied plot keep this film moving just fine. You'll need to dig this one up in VHS at your local video dealer, but it's well worth the search. This one's a gem. 7 of 10
