Don't Come Knocking (2005)

Don't Come Knocking is a slow, presumptuous film.

An aging, disreputable actor runs away from a set in the desert to find himself. His journey takes him to various characters in his past that give him perspective on how he has screwed up his life.

It is difficult to gauge what the filmmakers expectations for their viewers are. There were several moments when I didn't laugh when obviously there was something meant to be laughed at and other times when I didn't feel sympathy for the characters when clearly there was an effort to evoke such emotion. I just found the film flat mostly.

There is some merit to the film as the message of confession and forgiveness are central. The pacing and character development just brings it down a few notches.

Truth: Atonement should always be sought, despite whatever may stand in the way.
