Solid work of storytelling, acting, etc. Good script, a simple little crime story with a different angle. Kinda of a more realistic version of "Memento".

When the first shot came out, it looked a little edgy and video-ish but for the most part, this is one of the most film-like Genesis features out there. Other than some slight softness, 98% of the time you'll forget that it was shot in HD. The color scheme is by design somewhat pale, wintery, monochromatic but not unrealistically so. Day scenes are really clean and the night scenes have a faint noise that looks more like film grain than anything else. Very consistent look compared to "Reign Over Me", which mixed noisy and clean shots more obviously (at least what I saw from only seeing about 15 minutes of that movie.)

There was only one shot with the Genesis telltale vertical flaring, when a bright police car passes by the camera.

Very true...when I saw this in SXSW I didnt realize it was shot in HD until the Q+A. The story gets a bit formulaic in the last few reels but a good film.
