Cinema at its Best
11 January 2010 | by caseykuehlSee all my reviews

I was able to see "The Penitent Man" at the Seattle premiere. The Penitent Man is a smart, intriguing, and beautiful movie. The story flows through out the movie and keeps you drawn in. Lance Henriksen delivers a wonderful performance and sets a tone for the movie itself. Lathrop Walker is a great new comer and I hope to see him more in the future. The movie takes you on a journey and keeps you entertained from begging to end. Nick Gyeneny is a young and passionate director, who's record of work continues to grow more and more impressive. I hope to see more from this director and look forward to his next film The Riot. This is a film for all movie lovers.
