I was strangely captivated by this film's hypnotic atmosphere and story.
I only put the three stars at the top of my posts but I have to mention Chris Cooper, Allison Janney, Wes Bentley, Peter Gallagher and the brilliantly twisted Mena Suvari. "Welcome to America's weirdest home videos." Of course, I'm being unoriginal when I say that Kevin Spacey delivers easily one of the best performances of the 90s.
