What begins as an almost sullen and certainly glacial story about wayward teens in St. Petersburg, Florida grows into an eerie meditation-the sort that people, when they've had the distance, look back on with a misplaced feeling of warmth.

"My fiction beats the hell out of my truth." That suggestive line from first-time filmmaker Chris Fuller's dead-end portrait of suburban American dystopia cuts like a knife across the dramatic heart of an original and gutsy drama captured on 16mm film.

A deceptively simple indie drama that's quite bizarre, raw, haunting and refreshingly original on a visceral level.

The low-budget, low- tech indie Loren Cass is an example of less being best.

A starkly lyrical portrait of angry, disaffected teens in the racially tense wake of the actual 1996 St. Petersburg, Florida, riots.

It's tedious, dispiriting stuff.

Loren Cass is neither a success nor a failure. It has a young director who is a work in progress.

We're presented a small slice of life with a group of wasted teens, expected to consider this to be somehow artistic and asked to be sympathetic for their malaise.

Fuller leaves plenty of room for the viewer to create his own meaning but, in the end, it's not clear how much meaning the filmmaker has brought to the project himself.
