Movie Reviews

Excellent performance, interesting filmmaking
Steve Kuehl | Ben Lomond, CA | 03/18/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I remember seeing this guy in Fastlane and thinking he would end up doing something else (better and less mainstream) to prove he has a great talent. Sadly, his minimal performance in Twilight yielded that interest; an onslaught of requests from customers wanting to see something of this guy. Not another teen movie here by any means, but his best performance to date.

Two things make this film stand out. First is Facinelli's totally believable take on a drug addicted, dealing ex-cop who still wants to solve a big case to make things right in his mind. And secondly the filming style mix of black & white, slight color add-ins, and tunnel camera montages. The hand-held camera thing does irritate a great deal of people, but they did it in such a way here that it does not detract from the themes. There is a point in most of the film being devoid of color, especially when the last scene plays out it wraps the reasoning up for most.

The story follows our lead character through a week in his life where everything he has done personally and professionally all comes crashing together in a string of epiphanies. Not much should be said about plot details, but the recommendation can remain strong on some very believable performances, unique filming style, and a strong message of never giving up on what you believe can make your life right. A strong R rating for sexual situations, violence, lots of drug use and language.

The DVD contains little supporting material but is an owner for those fans (both new and old) looking to prove this guy has a strong variance."
