| The Light and sufferer is worth a rent
The Light and sufferer.

This is a weird low budget drama that add a little Sci Fi on to a fairly common story in our world. I watched it because I wanted to see what else Paul Dana has done. I liked him in "Little Miss Sunshine" and "Gigantic". I think Paul is destined for the big time. I wasn't disappointed by the acting. As for the obviously Low budget CGI it worked because it is odd. I think Paul is destined for the big time.

The film moves at a reasonable pace as the characters move toward the inevitable climax. The use of the CGI Cat as a silent witness is an interesting touch and leaves the question of what we experience in the viewers head.

The Light and sufferer is worth a rent and an hour and 10 minutes to see. I would have liked to see some more of the suffers story told or rather spelled out but I guess that is part of what was supposed to be left up to the viewer.
