This movie has captured it
24 October 2010 | by oneofthetwelveSee all my reviews

The atmosphere, the doing time in a town of nothing-but-work, the people, drugs and work.. it's all in here.

Most won't understand this movie though, but I do.. been living that way of life also. It's life when you're surrounded by people you like, but ... it's not that simple. Work, is something you have to do also. Emmett returns to his old hometown and after a while he's using lots of cocaine, selling pot and trying to live normal life. As in real life, no party lasts for ever.

It's like an excerpt from someone's real life these days. And a very entertaining one, I didn't feel like 'fwd button, where are you?' a single time during this movie, so in a way, goal accomplished, isn't it?
