Good amateur effort
9 December 2001 | by crash_into_me420See all my reviews

The Vigil seems to have a lot of trouble deciding whether it's a tribute to Kurt Cobain or the story of the emotional decay between two brothers. The way I see it, the trip to Seattle is the backplot and if it's a tribute to Cobain you're looking for here, you won't get much of one.

The acting really isn't that bad, and even though it's not hard to lose interest in the story it is well told through eerie dream-sequence scenes. Overall, a good amateur effort.
