engaging and well-directed
10 January 2003 | by littlemesSee all my reviews

If you're thinking this is a rehash of Clerks or any slacker comedy, think again; while some parts are funny this is the movie that takes place AFTER the slackers have had their fun and start revealing their true selves; in essence it feels like if Cassavettes was in his 20s, making films with Gen X casts. It's more of a look at the young suburban male psyche and while all the people in the film hold your interest, there's few that I'd want to spend time with; it's dead on in its depiction of certain personalities without ever going the by-the numbers route. Great perfs and a touch of pleasant-times-faded-away.. Definitely different, not the generic three-act 'main character overcomes it all" film. Closer to a documentary at times while never looking cheap or home-made. Check out the DVD, as there's more supplemental material than I've seen on any independent DVDs. Good stuff.
