Bertocci never really seems to misfire. The quality may vary in his shorts, but he always does good work. This is carried by the style and the acting, both of which are rather solid throughout. Siegel, who we've seen before in other stuff by Guy in his Basement Productions, is remarkable. Mark is credible as well. Adam himself is fun to watch, as usual. The quirky comedy, whilst still a little present, is toned down in this, in his performance and in general, to make more room for the serious material, and it's pulled off magnificently well. This didn't lose my interest. The plot develops nicely and is well-told. The pacing isn't bad at all. The references to various films, and the one to a previous effort by the director, tend to be well-integrated. The visuals are just about invariably attractive, and editing and cinematography are commendable. The music is well-done, unsurprising when it's the work of Van Kapeghian(I speak from experience, he did scoring for me, twice, and I was quite happy with what he delivered in each case). I recommend this to fans of Adam Bertocci, and his releases. 8/10
