Definitely worth seeing
16 April 2001 | by mwestonSee all my reviews

I saw this film at the "Camera Cinema Club" in San Jose, CA yesterday. I really liked the story and sound track, although the acting was a little weak at times. The director/writer/producer/star was there to answer questions afterwards, and he was quite amusing in person as well.

Note also that I think the film should really be listed as 1997 (I think that's what the copyright said) or 1998 (the web site said it was first shown publicly then).
