A Fine Debut Film by a Talented Filmmaker
For a directorial debut shot on 16mm, shot on weekends, and shot for around $6000, this is a great film! Future filmmakers and students should take notes.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Too flawed. Bad cinematography, especially in black/white format. The plot was silly also. I liked Alex Haw, the actor who played Cobb. He is a promising actor. I believe this is the only role he has done. I wonder why. Small film, inexpensive budget, no problem. I want to compare this film to Pulp Fiction as regards to use of flashbacks. They flashback sequences were done poorly. I do not see any emphasis on each flashbacks, meanings were too superficial to understand. I keep going ''Yeah he did; yeah thats what happened; so what? what is the point?'' In the end, somewhat chilling conclusion which was okay. Not much of a substance in the film overall. Some style but too flat. It wouldn't have been a difference if the story was told outright without the use of flashbacks. Big hole in this film...I see that the mob boss played a role in this film in a indirect way. How come the mob boss was not much of a factor after the robbery of his safe? That bothered me a little throughout the last part of the film. Overall, it is a weak film. I don't have a problem for a recommendation for you to take a look at it.
