    Reader comments on The Slaughter Rule

    Subject: Great visuals, too slow and sad
    Date: Apr 13, 2004
    Sender: Raul in MiamiPrevious | Next

    One too many subplots for one film. The football story is great. The boozing lectures are too P.S.A. His mother‚s a lonely detached whore. His father was a looser whom he never really knew. The best friend has his one issues∑and on and on∑not to mention the „men can‚t be that close or they want to butt-fuckš bullshit. Besides the football and cinematography; the dying deer is a metaphor for this film. Only a sense of morbidity kept me watching őtil the end.
