| Dark, disturbing family portrait
This movie has been playing on the Independent Film Channel lately, and it caught my attention. Tom Everett Scott and David Moscow are very convincing as brothers caught up in an abusive family relationship. I have seen Tom Everett Scott in other movies like "That Thing You Do!" which was much more lighthearted and fun. The expressions on his face and his actions in this film made me very uneasy. As another reviewer mentioned, I have never seen a person chop as much wood as he did in this film! A good metaphor for all the rage he was feeling. Being an animal lover, I was very disturbed with what Tom's character did with the family dog. But I think it fit in with how warped his character was. The music was an undercurrent running through the film, just as the water or lake played a part as well. A creepy, dark film about dysfunctional people.
