liked the film, interesting, wanted more resolution at the end

Found the film interesting, and certainly was worth watching. I found the review previously posted to be way to harsh in that the film was obviously shot the way it was, (shots from flip cam, lighting choices in certain scenes etc.) to create voyeuristic feel to the story. I was left wanting more resolution at the end. That was one of the only things I saw in this film, in my opinion, that was a problem for me.I did however find the editing on this film to appear more as a rough cut the a fine cut and I believe the story could have would have advanced a lot smoother, with some of the seemingly long clips for no apparent reason to simply been shortened. As a filmmaker myself, I find it encouraging for all filmmakers, to see a film with this kind of a budget get the attention of Sundance.
