    ★★★½ Watched 19 Aug, 2016

Michael Parks delivered a minblowing performance, and I can't honestly say any other actors brought it…

    ★★★★★ Watched 14 Feb, 2015

    Just finished watching it and the rhythm is still resonating through my body. I'm typing to that rhythm right now. The music in this movie blew my mind.

    This is the kind of movie that is going to be remembered.

    It starts off awkward, then it gets intense, then the intensity steps up. And then it steps up again. Then it goes so far you have no idea what's going to happen. By the end, I was prepared for it…
