Ian Douglas: I suppose my view is in the minority again, but I found this pretty tedious. We are supposed to feel sorry for the drug dealer, which is difficult given that he IS a drug dealer. The film jumps around in time quite a bit which makes it difficult to know what was in the past and what is happening now. The reviewers above who gave high ratings treated the dealer and his problems as an allegory of either the USA post 9/11, or companies like Enron, which influenced their ratings. As a non-American, that allegory was not obvious to me. The film is very talky, and not much happens, except for a bit of wishful thinking at the end. I viewed it as a cautionary tale for wanna-be drug dealers, but they are not likely to get to see this (only 5 prints in SA, so likely to be on the Art Circuit), and so I am left wondering, what's the point?... On the positive side, it does have some artistic merit, for those that are interested in that side of movies.
