Zzyzx....a wicked awesome film
30 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

Zzyzx is a wicked and wild, captivating film filled with moments when the viewer may not know if there is another breath coming. Anyone who is used to seeing Kenny Johnson (The Shield) as Lemansky, will be blown away by Lou! His performance is so gritty and raw, he puts Brad Pitt's character Early Grace (Kalifornia) to shame. Every aspect of this film was creepy, spooky and oddly terrifying. My skin reacted like it might when hearing nails on a chalkboard.... only, no noise made it happen!

Zzyzx was well cast as Ryan Fox and Robyn Cohen were great as well. From "The Life Aquatic" to Zzyzx? Well, you just never know what lies behind someone's eyes. What a ride!

Richard Halpern's got a hit on this one. I can't wait to find out what others have to say about it, and to see what he's doing next! Go Richard!
