Storyline

Billy Forsetti has grown up poor, desperate and angry. His best friend, Mikey, has taught him how to steal and fight his way through life. Add a couple of friends, and introduce the world of carjacking-amateurs seeking thrills and cash-it all leads to an intoxicating time. But when Mikey and Billy's values collide over where to draw the line, Mikey explodes and Billy finds himself estranged and wanting to move on. Billy takes up with a beautiful girl and finds a more promising life. But when a carjacking goes wrong, his past becomes a shadow that darkens and threatens his future. Mistrust, jealousy and fear will chase Billy down a rabbit hole that might leave him no way out.

This film is unsung... a brilliant raw and artistic vision!
5 December 2018 | by Rubysky12-868-730402See all my reviews

I was completely taken in by this movie. The performances were so raw and expert in my opinion, and the experimentational way this film was shot floored me. It's something that is missing from so many movies. It's reminiscent of Requiem for a Dream and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It's brave and entertaining but more importantly it's fresh. I recommend giving it a chance and watch with an artists' heart not a critic's.
