A striking little film
4 February 2000 | by Tuva-3See all my reviews

What a pleasure...considering the sort of garbage that one usually finds on Cinemax late in the evening, I almost didn't watch this. It has an undeniably amateur feel to it, but I lost myself both in the dialogue and the great sight gags (the three boys running would have had the Marx Brothers absolutely howling).

Mr. Hall did a laudable job of staying one step ahead of me; every time I thought that I had figured out where a particular strain of conversation was going, he would derail it completely with an undeniable truth.

There's nothing particularly groundbreaking here, but, like all good art, it made me think.
