Very Impressive Achievement
25 December 2006 | by mclaff9See all my reviews

Patrick Roddy has crafted a very impressive film as his directorial debut. The look and feel are awesome. The acting, particularly of the lead, is exceptional. The pacing - slow at first, then building - is effective in giving the viewer an initial feeling of monotony, followed by increasing anxiety. The plot developments were not broadcast, but made sense as they evolved. Some of the acting may come across as somewhat theatrical, but it works in that it fits in the style of earlier movies that Mercy reflects. A couple of the minor characters were notable standouts in their quirkiness - the bartender and the parole officer. Roddy has created a excellent film noir achievement.
