I just heard of this the other day and it sounds fascinating. I really want to see this one.

This is on Netflix Instant.

More people should watch this.

It doesn't quite stick its landing, but the build up is great and it has a great protagonist unique to the revenge-cum-noir genre.

Yeah, that stock white-trash family of villains kind of sinks the ending. Good stuff overall though.

The build up does make you expect a more civil or emotional ending, didn't it? Not that I mind a good old fashioned white trash bloody shootout.

Agree with everything said so far. I don't know what exactly I was looking for in the ending...I guess with all the twists and turns I was expecting another one.

I quite liked the ending. Throughout the entire movie, the protagonist didn't really know what the hell he was doing, so it makes sense that it basically shook out that way.

Good film. Has a real 70s B-movie feel to it. This is the type of low budget independent film-making I can get behind: lean, brutal, atmospheric, with a few twists on the formula. Sure beats all the 90s Tarantino rip-offs and the 2000s mumblecore/Noah Baumbach-esque affluent suburban ennui.

Really great and incredibly tense film. Also gotta love that ending.

I quite liked how this chose its nihilistic tone and stuck with it until the bitter end. I would have liked to have seen the full final shootout, but given the budget, I'm not surprised they danced around it a bit. I suspect Scar would get a kick out of the way they handled the gunplay.
