26 April 2005 | gascapgt
| Haunting, disturbing, classic
A fine display of independent cinema, this pre-Columbine movie provokes deep and personal questions and alarms the viewer with its penetrating journey into the human psyche.

Through excellent character development the audience is given the chance to take sides with different characters in the movie, each with their own positive traits and motives and certainly each with their often disturbing flaws. As violence and apathy are used to control and solve problems, we are forced to wonder what we would do in those situations, and who's really the enemy. As actions and reactions become increasingly extreme, the line between right and wrong becomes increasingly obscurred right up to the powerful and provocative ending.
