There is a surprise ending about the mobsters, which I won't give away here. Over all the atmosphere was dark, depressing, and had no real location except a stage set, which represented the town. It was one of those sets you saw on "Our Town," where the houses had no walls, no trees, animals were represented by cutout drawings, etc. If you remember the Star Trek adventure where Kirk was at the OK corral, you get the idea. and there was a British sounding narration throughout the movie. And no, I'm not smoking anything. Hee!

This is a piece of pathetic anti-american EuroCrap. The Belgian dumbass who wrote the screenplay has never even been to the US, much less to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. And I'm still pissed-off that I wasted three hours of my life watching it!

Even my liberal friends went away from this one shaking their heads. I'm still not sure of the message. I wonder if the writer was making the statement about personal responsibility and its social consequences, or should I say, social consequences of improvished America. I found it interesting that the trailor pretty much hid the fact that this was a performance piece rather than a real movie, with sets and stuff. These elitists are so good at relieving us of our evil capitalistic money. I'll bet the Thompsons were even fake. Now that's pretty low.
OK, I didn't mean to spend so much time on the movie part, so feel free to toss this thread in the "any topic" section or just let it die like a dog in a bad movie.
