I liked it, especially the performance by the girl who plays Madeline. I thought it was an interesting look at the perspective of someone with a mental illness. I didn't care so much for other Decker films like Butter on the Latch....this film felt a lot more genuine and less pretentious.

What is all this about growing up? Who wants to be an adult in this sham society we have here?

I'm not the best critic, positive or negative. It seems to me that, although I do look deeply into the works that fire my soul, that I should be wary of articulating exactly what it is that ...Read more
