liked it

i wanted this to be as brilliant as everything as illuminated, but somehow it fell short. i think it might be the subject matter, even in 2005 it felt too soon to be poking and prodding at what still felt like a tender national wound. i liked the characters though, and it was still enjoyable, just not quite as amazing.
