Trivia

During shooting, a coat rack was accidentally left out of a shot. Much later, after wrapping the scene, the crew noticed the continuity error. A coat rack was later added during post-production to correct the mistake, marking the film's only digital effect. See more »

Decent but could use some work
10 January 2010 | by KateskeesSee all my reviews

I recently saw "The Penitent Man" at the Seattle premiere early this week. The two main actors, Lance Henriksen and Lathrop Walker, performed very well. The soundtrack was appropriate and professional. In my opinion, what was supposed to be undertone was overtly obvious. The movie itself had interesting points and almost not surprisingly was written in two weeks. The director, who also co-wrote and produced the film, is very young and it is apparent that it is early in his career. There were places in the film that were overly tense and suspenseful feeling awkward and tearing the viewer away from the relationship trying to be established with the characters. This movie had potential based on the storyline idea but fell flat in the end.
