Ultimately offers little satisfaction outside of the strong performances.

Recoiling from L.I.E. is a very human, and frankly a very responsible, reaction.

Granted, these desires can be conflicted and perplexing, but the representation here reads as a failure of nerve, a refusal to take on an uncomfortable topic.

Strong story telling, character development and acting, off-putting subject matter.
October 1, 2001
Sluggish, lurching, and unevenly paced, with some crucial improbabilities in the script.
September 21, 2001
A relentlessly glum, distasteful and moralistic coming-of-age story.

I kept wondering why I was watching these people, and an answer was never forthcoming.

The performances are pretty good, Cox especially, but all in all we don't really care all that much about the characters or what happens to them, and the ending, while unexpected is really lame.
September 4, 2001
Confused and disjointed.

Would have worked best as a half-hour short film about Howie's ill-advised foray into Big John's haven.

Prepubescent homoeroticism and loveable pederasty highlight this preposterous and pointless provocation.
