I had the pleasure of seeing this film when it premiered in Los Angeles on the big screen. I was thoroughly impressed, and surprised. It's a well-acted drama that twists it's way into a understated kind of thriller. It starts a bit slow but builds into very satisfying ending. The lead, Tyler Christopher, did an amazing job, reminding me of a very young Marlon Brando. The supporting roles were equally well cast, and felt both real and natural. I would defintely recommend this title.

I saw this on the recommendation of a friend who is a huge fan of Director Karl Kozak. I was skeptical at first but was pleasantly surprised! Great acting and an even better script. A must see.

Some familiar faces (Sally Struthers, Michael J. Pollard, Sally K) and some good-looking newcomers, all well-casted. Kirkland does a great job as the mute mom. Twisting plot that comes to an unexpected but satisfying end. Try it, you'll like it.

This is definitely a must see movie for anyone who resides in Pennsylvania. My grandfather was a coal miner so I could really relate to this story - an all-American tale with great characters. I loved it.

The film Out of the Black is quite a nice movie, but Mr. Karl Kozak is now under the scrutiny of the Securities and Exchange Commission regarding investment sales tactics in raising funds to make the film. Apparently, he and a number of other indie filmmakers, ran fast and loose with the laws governing unregistered securities.

This movie took us to the underground depths of life in the mining country of Pennsylvania, perhaps a dying industry in those small towns. It's a real life drama that overwhelms an ordinary blue collar family and almost tears them apart. Sally Struthers is at one of her best! The director had an obvious connection to these small towns and used his cast to make them feel like our neighbors.

When I see a movie like this I always wonder how many other worthwhile movies are out there that we'll never get to see on the big screen. This was an excellant film with great plot twists and superb acting. I also must admit I love Tyler Christopher so I might be biased but he is very hot in this - possibly his best role to date.
