As good as any crime drama
18 August 2005 | by ChungMoSee all my reviews

What starts as a well-done if mundane remembrance of a good friend soon turns captivating as the film dives deep into the disappearance of said friend. The filmmakers soon blur the line as the everything becomes deeply personal. Interviewees choke up and the director walks on camera to comfort them. Finally the director becomes a detective and the main character of this documentary as he won't just let his friend vanish. It works because the emotion behind this film is very real. The quest for the truth drives this film to the very end and holds the viewer.

Along the way we are given a window into American Paranoia and the unspoken specter of mental illness. If you have had someone close to you "suddenly" lose it and change personalities, you'll find this film important. Very effective and very moving.
