Shortly after landing a job, Terry Allen is laid off, starts looking for another circa post September 11, 2001 media frenzy and paranoia with President George W. Bush stating that grief has turned to anger, anger to resolution, and that there are thousands of terrorists in over 60 countries ready to strike. With increasing reports of identity theft, the involvement of wealthy & educated foreigners in terrorist activities, Terry starts suspecting his new neighbor, a middle-easterner, who he stereotypes as 'raghead', 'camel jockey', and 'sand nigger'. His wife, Marla, does not share in his bigotry, but he believes that she has turned her attention from rock-stars to Jihadists. While looking for employment, as well as a loan to purchase a house, he also contacts the Federal Bureau of Investigation as he feels he has sufficient evidence that his new neighbor is structuring money, experimenting with chemicals, and associating with other middle-easterners for devious reasons.Written by
All the news scrolls go from left to right, but news scrolls go right to left (at least in languages that read left to right) so you see the first words first. This makes it impossible to read. The filmmakers did this intentionally, and it's up to the viewer to decide why they did it this way. See more »
i am no expert, i just like watching movies and i liked this one. it has a good story and good actors to sustain it. there isn't much development in the characters, but then this is not this kind of a story - its just like a window has opened to us, the viewers, into the world of a family, that has its dreams and problems, but now and then we get fragments of the bigger picture and then suddenly it all goes wrong and crazy...
as a kind of bottom line - when men forget about the love and start playing their 'games', its always the innocent who pay the price for it
its a good movie - don't be afraid to watch it, you'll enjoy it
