Simply put, it rocks!

I can't even begin to describe this movie, named after it's budget, as it's truly an experience in itself. Essential viewing for anyone who can find an opportunity to see this gem.

William Lorton is an extremely talented film-maker and if you have the chance to see any of his films jump for it!
