Strong thesping and solid staging, atmospherically accompanied by disorienting, darkly folksy Ramsay Midwood songs make Wake surprisingly watchable.
June 5, 2004
Feels like a stagy adaptation of an already contrived play.
May 29, 2004
A sour piece of work without a stitch of humor, taking itself too seriously... dramatic aspirations dead on arrival.

Each brother fulfills a different purpose in the plot, and because they don't allow you to get too emotionally close, they're not as predictable. They're more real.

Roy Finch's shrill, derivative independent film is largely a one-set affair that seems to have been transplanted from its natural home somewhere Off-Off-Off Broadway.

May 26, 2004
As maddening as this clan is, one feels sympathy for the ensemble, which, absent full-bodied characters to inhabit, mug furiously, as if big gestures conjure big themes.
May 25, 2004
Fraught with sophomoric lost-innocence metaphors and schematic oedipal tensions.
