What can I say – I love John Sayles films. He undoubtedly has his own style of movie (at least the ones he directs himself), but they’re masterpieces that show elements of real world America usually avoided.
The film is quite long, and you can’t say that it totally wraps up every loose end, although you can see the way things are likely to go. And the ending certainly isn’t like the one in Limbo!
This kind of film is a rarity so enjoy it.
