The ending seems a little cliched, and unsatisfying, which is a shame as it would have been a much more original film had they seen it through. But Slater is excellent and Macy and Cuthbert lend solid support.

I was pleasantly surprised at the standard of the performances in this film, but I agree they could have been braver with the storyline.

I could see what they wanted to do with this movie. To portray a man on the edge in his final moments before he loses the plot totally but it just didn't work because there were too many ideas jumbled together. There was no coherent structure. The story became confusing as to whose story this was. Was it MaConal's or the paralysed chick? It could have been an interesting tale told from either perspective but this movie couldn't make up its mind which direction it was going. What about the bitch with big tits? They built up her character only for her to go nowhere. I thought at least she would be shot at the end but he shot himself? Why?
