Lost in the edit
18 September 2007 | by mike-murphy-2See all my reviews

This should have been a moody, gritty, movie which lingered in the memory as an exposition of relationship where the dominant personality only survives because the personality being dominated sees no hope of change.

The acting was intense and skillful, the dialogue worked but the movie was irritatingly ineffective: too many distance shots that suggested lack of focus rather than a broader picture. Poor flow. The first 5 minutes could have been missed out altogether.

I suspect that, with a different edit, this movie could have been compelling.

In its current form it is flat, formless and tremendously disappointing.
