What a confusing and mediocre movie. I thought this might be an interesting movie: an ex-con trying to fly right, a young girl infatuated with him, and an ex-cop dedicated to making sure he doesn't relapse. Did you like my quick introduction? Because all this interesting character moments happens during 90 minutes of NOTHING....just a lot of pseudophilosophical garbage that goes on and on. Come on, where's all the interesting moments? Where are the "interesting insights into the mind of a killer"? Please. I'll go back to my DVD seasons of Dexter, now that I've been bored to tears with Eric (Foster). Not once did I ever feel threatened by Eric, nor did I ever feel that Lori (Traub)'s life was in immediate danger. No, it's because Lori's motivations are completely asinine and insanely self-destructive.
Folks, if you want a good psychological thriller, check these titles out:
-Dexter (Seasons 1-4)
-Psycho (Hitchcock version)
-Hard Candy
