Quotes

Raimi Matthews: The throat tightens, the heart races, the pupils dilate, I love that moment of giddy anticipation before you get what you want. Soon I'll a sore throat, stained fingers, and a benzene headache, but right now, at this moment, my whole existence rests on the tip of this cigarette. God bless the cancer merchants. I'm getting what I want.

Profoundly beautiful and surprisingly moving
3 August 2006 | by spaceboy_xSee all my reviews

This is unlike anything I ever experienced. A new medium if you will. By the time you realize the depth of the story and characters it is too late for you too turn away. You will be hooked and changed forever. I have never felt compelled to write any words for a film or such but the fact that this production was done so under ( out of ) the Hollywood radar and succeeds on so many levels makes it a compelling success. Give it a shot. There is a darkness that holds this piece together in the beginning but it ultimately redeemed. Anyone feeling the pangs of coping in our auto-destruct, auto-pilot society will feel that they are not alone, indeed they have a friend and a voice who understands. The voice overs are brilliant .. try to pick out the Smoking Man from X-files. I would really love to experience this in theaters.. especially the ending in the cathedral.. check out the old flash web site for a taste I guess.. give yourself some time. This isn't a Hollywood adrenaline fix but rather the real deal Peace
