Look no further. Aside from that, this was actually a good freshman film for this crew. Gritty, depressing, and hopeless, yet some believable performances.

The story follows a loser dad, played well by an unknown (as is the rest of the cast actually) who is losing all that has meaning since his recent stint in jail. Through the coarse of a single day, we see him try to bond with his estranged son, hold a job and stay out of trouble. Eventually, we come to see that this guy really has no hope of succeeding at anything, and will resort to the criminal ways in order to facilitate existing. The scenes are long, the acting believable, and the general feel of hopelessness is conveyed adequately.

Trivia wise, I think this has to be the only film where three of the actors that all got there starts in the 70s, disappeared for 30 years then came together for their first recognizable film in the 2000s. Their roles were my favorite parts of the movie - Jody Jaress who plays the heartfelt mother of the lead character, Peter Looney playing the way too old sheriff (reminded me of Levon Helm a bit) and Jim Storm playing the grumpy scrap yard owner.

The commentary is an example of how not to do one, and I lasted for 15 minutes before calling it quits. They had the whole acting crew and assorted staff present for a commentary party. I understand it was fun for them but trying to obtain anything meaningful out of all the conversations gets tedious. No other extras, the video quality is poor, out of focus at times and the audio is standard. But I couldn't really ding those aspects as it fits in with the dirty feel of the film. A 3-star film but an extra bump for the performances.

I liked the junkyard owner right from the start. His warped sense of time created a believable character you could easily enjoy. The acting was very good. The interaction between the man, his son, and his former wife was spot on. I was drawn into the story and left wanting more. The sex education scene between the father and son was absolutely wonderful. Both funny and endearing. Moments like these play throughout the film. These were not actors reading from a script. These were people living a role. A very powerful movie everyone should see.
