Sweet little film

  • Dec 14, 2008
I found the opening shot in this film chilling, and not because I found the bees disturbing. As the camera moves in to Peter Fonda's face, for a moment, he looks exactly like his dad....

As other reviewers have pointed out, the film is slow moving. If you're not the type to use honey because you're too impatient to wait for it to flow slowly from the jar, you probably won't appreciate what takes place here. But a tension develops in the first moments of the film that is nicely sustained until the very end. Further, there are some scenes in which the verisimiltude hits so close to home I found myself getting anxious. Anyone with a dysfunctional family understands that as each member makes poor choices, the entire family is affected in some way eventually. Enough said there.

Peter Fonda has come into his own in this film. I'd love to see him do more work like this.
