During the Q&A session for a 2016 festival screening of the film in New York City, when asked if he had any advice for aspiring young filmmakers in the crowd, writer/director George A. Pappy Jr. replied: "Given my experience over the past ten or twelve years, I'd say this: Making a good film (or two) is certainly possible despite all the odds stacked against you. However, even if you do succeed on that front, it doesn't guarantee that you'll be able to make a viable (and consistent) living as an independent filmmaker, especially someplace like New York or LA, where the cost of living is very high. It's a funny business, especially nowadays, and the financial rewards are not always as merit-based (or inevitable) as you'd expect from virtually any other line of work. It's important to know this going in as it may eventually inform your decision to stay or to leave the industry. Whatever you decide, I wish you good luck.". See more »
Chris tells Frank that the .22-caliber revolver Frank will use for an assassination doesn't require a silencer, apparently in the belief that such a pistol is inherently quiet. But a .22 revolver emits a noticeable report; if noise suppression was a concern, the gun should have been equipped with a silencer. See more »
This is a meaningful film about a man who seeks redemption after decades in prison for a mistake that he made when he was so young.I always liked Kenny Johnson from his work on the Shield and remember seeing him early on in Blade. Truly great performances from Kenny Johnson, Brad Dourif, Rainn Wilson, David Marciano, Laura San Giacomo, and Michael Sheen. Some of the scenes of Kenny Johnson walking in different locations in Los Angeles are some of the most beautiful that I have ever seen in film. Director George Pappy, Jr. has created a deep story here. I am looking forward to seeing George's next film. I saw that it is called Dark Well, but do not know much about it.
