    This is the kind of film that sticks with you, and makes you want to watch again. The story isn't told in a traditional way, which can make it feel unsettling and even disorienting at times, but in an interesting and engaging way.

    A slow burn that pays off in a big way. Acting was wondeful, writing was excellent, story unfolded unexepectedly and and was well-executed. Even the score was good. Would've liked to have seen more of Bedila and Patton, but that's a small complaint. Highly recommended.
