One of the boldest entries in 2000 Sundance Fest, Shear's impressive debut is a darkly intriguing drama that probes the nature of love and lasting effects of loss, beautifully played by Dan Futterman (who later became known as the scripter of Capote)

Superb parts and a muddled whole is one way you can describe this eventually incisive look into one man's homosexuality.

The disorienting film takes devious delight in layering various versions of the stories so that we feel like we're jurors looking into a courtroom lined with funhouse mirrors.

Shear skillfully captures [a] steamy atmosphere and takes his time to develop Charlie into a rounded character.
