    So it was rushes we were watching.

    What bores into me is the sweat and pores of his skin. The part where he just plays while he is waiting.

    All this background about being ignored is righteous but without knowing about it, changes the experience of the film.

    Thus my lowish score. Originally at two stars out of five. I've since read reviews giving me some background.

    I'm still saying that the film on itself does not show this clearly…

    Of the eleven films I saw at this festival, this was the most enjoyable.
    Funny, bittersweet, at times deep--all of these experiences were captured and delicately held in this film.
    The idea wonderful, the execution with such a finesse. That's how I would describe delicate.
    The finesse came with the rhythym of the passersby and who spoke and responded when. Wonderful.
    Also the editing into what questions would be answered--such a finesse there.
    The use of the timing of the year especially thru the one character's chores.
    Finally the wisdom to know when to ask the right question. Wow.

    The message is an experience of hearing an oncoming conflict, rife with bombs, planes, and the drone getting louder and louder of army tanks coming through your street where the local school is.
    This…

    I'm doing a character study project of the characters that Adrienne Shelly plays. This was a different side of her, and I very much appreciated seeing another view of Adrienne Shelly.
    I thought Billy Crudup was pretty one-dimensional. What if Shelly had been with a different actor? Hmmmm the possibilities.
