So many missed opportunities

Ugh. So many missed opportunities. So many unanswered questions.

Such a shame, because this film had so much potential: Beautiful location, nice camera work, fine young actors. The action is inexplicably set in 1992 (another wasted opportunity) and a character is introduced who is so annoying (Is he autistic? Is he obnoxious on purpose?) that you're almost relieved when he dies.

So now we've got the makings of a tight little coming of age neo-noir, right? Nope. The film meanders along for quite awhile before it occurs to you that THERE"S NO STORY! What was the motivation for the "murders"? Did he even do it? Why? What was the weed connection? What happened on the bridge? Things are so casually mentioned and never explained that by the conclusion (How did he survive multiple point blank stabbings??) you're just relieved that it's over.

I kept watching, hoping it would get better, but it just didn't. I hope this director hammers out a better story and script before he makes his next film, because he clearly has talent that was wasted on this film.
