The DVD features several deleted scenes including:
Barret going to Ryan's aunt's house to see if she's seen Ryan after he's beaten up by Todd.
A longer, more disturbing, one take shot of Ryan's speech about the world.
Ryan explaining it felt good to kill the Whipporwill guy to Barret after shooting Todd in the arm.
Barret and Augusta getting into a fight shortly after the Whipporwill guy is killed (explaining Augusta's absence from the rest of the film).
Ryan returning to Asbury Park where he buys the gun.
I was flipping through the channels and came across IFC (the independent film channel). I see a film playing that for some reason catches my fancy, so I decided to watch it. I'm very glad that my decision was so. That film was A BETTER PLACE. A very moving film, which lets you empathize for the two main characters, each in their own way. Note-worthy direction, acting that is up to par with standard indy flick normality, and dialogue that I can only compare to a dramatized version of KEVIN SMITH's work. Over all, I really enjoyed this flick, and would recommend it to just about anyone I felt was mature enough to handle the adult themes.
