Drama, Suspense/Thriller
Writer-director Kyle Schickner's 2004 thriller creates a fair amount of suspense and gets the ambience of New Orleans and its environs right—especially several night scenes that take place deep in the bayou. But the story's conclusion feels tacked on, as if Schickner's sole intention had been to ensure that no one would see it coming. Kent Faulcon is solid as a successful gay African-American attorney who returns to his native city from New York after a gay childhood friend has been beaten and hanged from a tree. Immediately he locks horns with a cantankerous local sheriff, whose motives for blocking an investigation remain maddeningly unclear. With Sam Jones, Berlinda Tolbert, and David Raibon.
