STILL THE DRUMS What a powerful story of young best friends spanning over fifty years. The emotional ride and the process of life during war and the lasting effect it has on a soldier after he has hung up his uniform.The good with the bad and the bad with the good.

Talbot Perry Simons does a fantastic duty as writer, director, and actor. This is truly a very well done INDY film, and fine performances by Bobby Figaro and Richard Fulvio. The passion of this film is so very captivating,a gut wrenching journey of the process of life of the men dealing with the true emotional effect of war.The finish was certainly an absolute shocking surprise, definitely a must see movie.
