A surprising film in a few ways. I enjoyed the almost-documentary style and I was shocked by some of the brutal scenes. It is graphic and subtle at the same time, and really well acted and directed. Harsh, but good.Added 03 August 2004 at 9:52 PM
Fascinating, disturbing, horrifying. There were times when I couldn't look at the screen. The acting was good, the story was good, and the movie was worth watching.
