  • lewis_longshanks's rating of the film Public Access

    Perhaps I missed something here, I found Public Access wasn't anywhere near as fantastic as made out to be. It is painfully slow and woefully dull, with an uneventful plot. Although Ron Marquette's character is a fascinating one, with his actual being and facade both up for interpretation. And most of the Public Access' acclaim does derive from Singer's technical excellence behind the camera, which I will grant.
