Banal, Great acting, Slow, Cliched, Disappointing

See it if like watching a good actor hopelessly trying to breath life into a mediocre play.

Don't see it if dislike seemingly overly long but actually short one-character plays dealing with guilt then pleasure addiction resulting from a "mistake."

Absorbing, Riveting, Thought-provoking, Intense, Quirky

See it if you're into avant-garde theatre. It's a one-man show that takes interesting twists and leads you into the dark path loneliness can take.

Don't see it if you want something high-budget. It's a speaking piece, long, narrative, up close. Triggering for people uncomfortable with suicide.

Ambitious, Confusing, Great acting

See it if you like one man shows with a twist that makes you not sure of what to think

Don't see it if you like a realistic story that is a real thought provoking drama
