it's hard for me to take a inking to this...
I just had this conscious feeling all the time that I had read or written this same material before. I'm not saying it's ripped off anything because it'shighly original. It's just I, myself had these same ideas.However, this is a very well written and eventful script. I enjoyed the characters and it was a niceaspect to see the central story set in the Gulf War and the characters are overall well done.The Iragi references seem alittle controversial to be made at the moment however but hey, we shouldn't be worrying about uptight Hollywood bosses with reputations to keepAt the end, I felt it was a tad too long, to just cut the loose edges would be my suggestion.But well done and good luck.

    This seems to be a pointless waste of time. Most of it could have been over black with white titles for the majority of the film, other than short bursts where people answer the door.I try to be as positive as I can in reviews but watching this was dull. I think it would work well as a short story. I honestly think it would , but a short film seems a pointless waste of time... read
