Anybody seen? When they first started talking my first reaction was -- "you've got to be kidding me." But after a few minutes I started getting into and by the end I was completely hooked.

Yeah I saw it...

rad movie, really rad movie.

Makes me sad that your first reaction was poor.

Same group of people who made "May" a few years ago.

I liked it a lot. But, as one critic says, it's an A+ film school project, but fails as a true production in terms of story, emotionality, etc. The problem with it is that it has such a one-track mind that it forgets there are other emotions that would have made the story more "real."

I found there was kind of an emotional coldness about it too, but that's part of the film noir genre.

you think?

I thought there were some genuine emotional moments in the film. The style never changed (was rather cold), but some of the more seasoned performers like Lucas Haas had some great moments,...especially when he was discovering the betrayal,.... Levitt ofcourse kept a steady course,....but like the previous post said,....went with the noir style. I saw a screening in Irvine,....and the director just happened to be there for QandA after. Didn't even know he was going to be there. It was a real treat. I will definitely look for his next project.

You know those were cool people because the closing song over the credits was "Sister Ray" by the Velvet Underground. That's not something I ever thought I'd hear in a movie theater.
