Every once in a while a little film comes along that makes me glad I still
have faith in the straight to DVD market.
Avatar's Joel David Moore is dazzling in his portrayal of Mason, a shy, troubled man who's only friend happens to be his call centre boss Chuck (Zachary Levi).
Chuck constantly tries to bring Mason out of his shell but he prefers to paint and listen to jazz over truly interacting with other people until a chance encounter with a co-worker (Amber Tamblyn) brightens up his life.
The two become friends as Mason sketches Amber and persuades her to pose for him. She doesn't know the troubles that lurk in his mind.
All violence is implied here, there is none on screen, this helps crank up the tension as the cracks in Mason's psyche begin to show.
Excellent performances all round and a few unpredictable twists make this an excellent little known film. Seek it out, you won't regret it.
