I've seen a lot of movies in my day. And I must say that this film is nothing short of brilliant. Superb writing from the beginning to the end. The experience was like watching real life on film. Do not judge this film by the cover because the low budget dvd cover looks like a National Lampoon type of movie. Coming from a male point of view, I can say that any American man, doesn't matter if he is as young as 21 or as old as 71 can appreciate this movie over and over again, and learn a few things from in the process(My father thinks this is one of the greatest films he has ever seen, and thats 7 decades of film watching credibility.) This film is definitely without a doubt in my top 5 of all time brilliant well-written movies. (The first three are the Godfather franchise, so that says a lot) Overall, I would love to see more from this director, writer, and actors in the near future. Addiction is a serious thing, and some of us can stay aware & recognize it within ourselves and counteract to it. On a technical stance, I loved the lighting in this film, which played a highly important role. And may I add a darn good soundtrack, as well. Go rent your copy of The Last Run at your local blockbuster, today!... or Netflix if you prefer. This was definitely the film of the decade!
