Clarifying the year
7 May 2008 | by sgonzoSee all my reviews

This was a senior year film at the North Carolina School of the Arts School of Film-making, so the actual year of production was 1998.

2001 was the year it was released as an additional feature on DVD.

Eddie Rouse has appeared in many other David Gordon Green films, such as George Washington, Undertow, All the Real Girls, and Pineapple Express.

This film was shot in 16mm, and a mag had a light leak, so if you look very closely you can see a few streaks caused by the bad mag.

The tag line for the poster: "Just when you've got the rhythm to life, Mother Nature changes the beat."

Craig Zobel was production designer, George Smith was DP, Kenya Tillery composed the music.
