The performances across the board are superb, with Cox giving one of the very best of the year.

Even in its least interesting moments, L.I.E should be credited for attempting to put an edgy kind of truth on camera.

Cox plays the boy-fancier, orange muscle car and all, with a brilliance you have to see to believe.

in the end, this is more deservedly bad press for NAMBLA.
