This movie is a fascinating look at how good people fall the "devil's snares". As the story unfolds, you keep seeing how the characters are caught in the toils of their own deceit, lie to, and betray each other, and how their little secret vices snowball into a tangled web of tragedy and chaos. One after one, the characters exhibit the classic element of Greek tragedy, which is a fatal flaw. Each is doomed by his or her rage, weakness, malleability,ch ildhood hurts, desperation to be loved,and addictions. It's a masterful piece: A complete disaster unfolding in slow-motion, flashbacks, surprise revelations and the horrible consequences that follow a little bit of "harmless evil" ...a little bit of petty crime. This is really an excellent movie, if you don't mind seeing how badly wrong things can go.
