Fantastic!
13 November 2013 | by Notbob44See all my reviews

I LOVE this movie. Saw it in Toronto at TIFF and then again at AFI Fest in LA, and both times was wowed by everything about this film. The tone, the setting, the characters, the acting, the music - it's a greasy, gritty, Texas neo-noir thriller that has impeccable style. Gotta say too that Mark Pellegrino plays one of the all-time great bad guys in this film - probably my favorite performance of his. And on top of it all, it's a perfect example of the power that indie filmmakers have, and should be an inspiration to others who want to make a film on very little money and a lot of heart. See this movie whenever you get the chance. I know I can't wait to own this one.
