Very well made independent film.
18 December 2008 | by timmyatlSee all my reviews

I found this film on IFC recently as I was flipping channels and it caught my attention immediately and it really blew me away. The fact that it was made by a first-time writer, director, and mostly first-time actors was even more of a shock. Especially the writing and acting of Stephen Grant (who played Walt Whitman) was absolutely superb. He also bares a resemblance to the actual University of Texas at Austin shooter Charles Whitman of whom the film was based, which makes it all the more chilling (even though the film was set in current times and not 1966). The film has a very surreal feel to it which you can tell was achieved very carefully. Apparently some people say it runs too long but, being a person with a notoriously short attention span, I didn't find myself getting bored at any moment. I would definitely recommend it to any fan of independent film.
