What is striking is that, the more the action is delineated, the sadder the film becomes, because none of it is good for Keith. Anything remotely eventful only drives him further and further backwards.
Though the ending may be a touch off-footed, and some performances range from the cliched to the monotonous, the majority of the film captures a rather unique (and realistic) concern that affects numerous Americans today.
Sketching Keith's inner conflicts and practical struggles with a graceful, mood-rich lyricism, Porterfield presses gently but painfully on some of the most inflamed and sensitive parts of American society.
