Very rewarding film if you make it to the end.
I'll start by saying that this is a long film. Its a two and a half hour slow burning noir. But I never really felt it drag or the tension become weak throughout. It keeps you you guessing all the way through and makes it impossible to see the ending, which I must applaud both the screenwriter and director for not taking the easy, Hollywood "all is well with the world' approach. Made for $150k,it looks top notch and the production values are up there with the mainstream. There were some parts where the acting was questionable however after looking these actors up online, I can very quickly see that this is their first film so top points for carrying it as well as they did. I was pleasantly surprised at how invested I was throughout the film and its definitely a film for those who are looking for something different and outside the convenient "fast food" viewing. A nod back to the old days of cinema.
