Jamie Alyson Caudle,
This is not a film for those who want speedy action, but the reverse. This odd movie plays entirely by its own rules, and it is not a masterpiece, but a really good try!
John Goodman, John Malkovitch, and Dena Delaney, are the pro stars in this little film about life, and dreams, while the younger kids (Jacob Zachar, and Skipp Sudduth in particular) do a great job here, too.
Slowly goes the story forward, in some ways reminding me of Kurosawa's movies about odd people, like his Dodeskaden.
A great, fresh, experience this film was, and I can't for my life understand why it has got such a low point as 5.0!
