| Unusual but touching
I don't know what to make of this film, actually. I love the gritty feel of the setting. It was consistent throughout. A few technical aspects...a black eye wouldn't form that quickly, and his eye would be horribly blood-shot and swollen. Should've opted for a cheek blow...easier to fake with makeup. The boy was the most redeeming quality of the film, actually. And he didn't even have any lines. The filming was good, nice editing, nice cinematography, but the idea they rode on was a bit far fetched. It did hold my interest, however, and I was intrigued with the physically challenged brother. Very interesting facial expressions. Appealing in a What's Eating Gilbert Grape kind of way. A film built more around his character and how he navigates his life would be interesting.
