| More Than Meets the Eye?
This is the kind of film which you don't know if it's just bad or if what feels bad about it is it succeeding. This question arises for me because I think it did succeed at what it aimed to do which was to portray two brothers, how they were different as well as alike and how they fed off of each other. Though the brother played by Josh Lucas was quite despicable, I wound up not feeling sorry for the other brother because they enabled each other.

The thing is, this often happens in families. Each brother had his own problems, i.e., with relationships, with work, art, and the world in general, but they both came from the same family and in the end, shared some common traits.

As the other review indicates, it is a slow moving film. The things that happen are "small" and more time is spent on events than usually happens in films, but that too may be calculated for its effect.

I'd recommend seeing it if you're a fan of any of the actors, and/or if you like watching psychological relationship movies which may make you feel uncomfortable, tense or frustrated. I probably would have liked it more if I felt I gained some kind of insight from it.
