You want the short review, don't waste your time. If you really want to know why then here you go. This movie follows the main character. Her life is nothing special. Actually in the first 30 minutes of the movie you get to see her daily life repeated over and over again. In those 30 minutes there are very few lines spoken so don't expect any witty banter. At the 30 minute mark I was so turned off by the story that I had no character attachment. I could have cared less what happened to her. The story itself never seemed to figure out what it wanted to be. The movie is listed as a psychological thriller. Sure it may have a few elements in that regard but it is a small portion. The story is part thriller, part reflection on human emotion and society. It actually feels like a group of friends sat around a table, drank some beers, and just started to jot random ideas down. The movie needs a dog, an axe, an obsession with coffee, and then lets somehow put all of this around a girl that is unhappy in Los Angeles. The filmmaking also had it problems as the audio at times was hard to hear over all the other noises. I also am not a fan of gloom o vison and this film had it share of those. If there is a bright spot it would be the main actress. She does a great job and does what she can with the role. Overall this movie was tough to watch. I had a hard time getting any emotional attachment to the characters. This is part of the slow pace to the movie and the lack of dialog. I appreciate the low budget effort but the movie to me lacked an identity.
