  • Worth the wait Sep 26, 2009
    by Csquare

    It had been years since I had seen this, and I wondered if I would still find it as much fun as it was the first time.
    Sure enough, as I had (vaguely) remembered, it started off as a very quirky "stranded in the desert, is this going to be about spousal murder" story. It soon became an intriguing collection of characters learning from each other. The action is deliciously slow, and although there is not one "normal" character in the cast, by the time the story draws to a close one realizes that it was, most definitely, worth the wait.
    I would recommend it for fans of any of the actors, for anyone wanting to have a break from the ear-splitting sound tracks and hyperactivity of many recent movies, and all who appreciate those movies of which the local video/DVD stores only stock one or two copies.

    This is a movie that I go back to despite knowing all that happens.....it has heart. The characters are engaging and pull you into this "fairytale-like" world. The performances are wonderful....as is CCH Pounder always. She is a terribly under used actress, even
    though, as soon as you see her, you remember all the TV spots she's been in...i.e.
    "ER" amongst the lot. There are no car chases, no gunfire, but there is a great feeling when the movie ends, leaving you with a smile on your face.
