| -Surprisingly emotional, gripping & engaging
I rented "Trash" initially confusing it w/ Jamie Pressly's similarly titled "Poor White Trash" (lol)...however, I was NOT disappointed with this film!! Sure, the movie is a bit amateurish & has its flaws (some over-acting, a mickey-mouse'd score, few cheesy lines), but ultimately this is a sincere, heart-felt good little movie. Jeremy Sisto gives a superb & immensely believable performance. Jamie Pressly is subtle, sexy & controlled as always. Both of these underrated actors really stand out in this flick. The direction is tight & focused, & really places the viewer in this desperate small town. (I couldn't help but thing of the far more effective "Gummo" & personal caparisons of eastern NC towns and the often desperate young people trying to break away). It's easy to connect and empathize with the characters, and provides for a gripping, emotional escape. I also loved the well-placed, twangy music. Anyways, I enjoyed this movie and everyone who I showed it to (or recommended it to) really got into it. Dismiss the overly critical (& suspiciously bitter) user reviews. Rent this little movie and be surprised!
