There is a saying in the business that a good story never gets good reviews. That is probably true here. But don't mistake this film for the story. This is a deep and sometimes even painful look at a situation in which too many of us find ourselves. It is a deeply personal story that is about some very difficult people, people who don't want to be pigeonholed. But they are the only ones who can see things that others don't see. It is also a story about human decency and some of the social factors that are making it happen. I do have a problem with this film. I didn't like it for several reasons. First, I didn't find the performance of the main character, David, very convincing. The idea that a man is made by the economy and society to do the worst thing in order to live a comfortable life, is not something that is shown to us. That was never the case with us, and the film doesn't even try to get us to sympathize with David. He's the worst of us, he's a slave to the system and he's doing something he knows he should be ashamed of. As a result, the film drags on and on. The second problem I had with the film was the writing. I don't think I'm the only one who thinks this was a very amateurish script. That's not to say that the film was bad. It was done well, but it was not done well enough to be a good film. It was kind of sloppy in parts, and I think that's where the majority of the flaws lie. The film was too long, and it seemed like it was trying to make a point, but then it seemed to be doing something else, and it was getting lost in the haze of its own story. Also, the film just did not hold my interest enough. It was a tough film, but it wasn't compelling. I'd give it a 6 or 7, but I just don't think it was worth that much. I recommend this film, but I don't think it's a movie that should be watched by anyone, no matter how well you like or dislike the subject.
