ejonline's rating of the film Fail to Appear

The first half was interesting, as it followed someone through learning the ropes at work. The second half, focusing on a different person who was adrift, was not as compelling. It felt like two snapshots, and I wanted to hear about one of them more than the other. Perhaps it could have been shorter, or longer, since at this length it felt awkward, stuck between not enough (for narrative) and too much (for mood).
