Storyline

Carty Fox has struggled with his drinking and the blackouts that attend it for as long as he can remember. But now, having jumped into the sober world one more time, he attempts to find a tiny handhold with which he can pull himself out of the gloom and into a more normal life. But what does that normal life look like? And how does he learn to live in it with his new son and discouraged wife? For Carty, the answer arrives in the form of a message written on a twenty-dollar bill. A message which, much to the chagrin of his family and friends, begins to intrigue him, to take hold of him, and finally drag him into an obsession. An obsession that leads him on a journey into a Lynchian landscape of shame, rage, and pain. A journey that forces him to reflect on his own life and, perhaps, to catch sight of the shadowy person he has imprisoned for all these years in his drunken state of mind. But will the experience of looking at the man in the mirror set him free or send him over the edge ... Written by Walter Spring

First-rate acting in this unusual indie film
12 May 2010 | by facesandshadowsSee all my reviews

First-rate acting is at the center of this unusual indie film. Chopper Bernet, Lisa Darr, Clancy Brown, and Stephanie Niznik lead a strong cast in this story about a man who finds a frightening message scribbled on a twenty dollar bill and can't get it out of his mind. The film is complex, takes risks and requires some patience, and that's exactly what makes it good. Especially impressive is the relationship developed between the main character, played by Bernet, and his wife, played by Darr. It's nuanced and real, and explores uncomfortable issues rarely seen in films. Clancy Brown is great as usual. And another thing, the photography is incredible.
