I bought DF from the Stash back in January, and have watched it a few times. It's not my favorite movie, to be sure. But everytime somebody comes on here and gives it hell, I always think the same thing: "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone."
Once you've nursed a little idea into a script, into storyboards, into casting, rehearsal, shooting, and ohmysweetsweetgod editing, then come back and flat-out trash it if you really think it deserves it.
Not to say that you should have liked it if you didn't, because that's just uncool. But sometimes you've got to give a brother a break. I probably would have liked it more if the sub-plots were more well developed, but I see where it was headed, and I admire the tenacity it took to get it done.
One question: What made you see a glimmer of hope it the "there isn't a cabin" scene? Lee's shifty eyes and stubbly chin? Perhaps, but more likely it was the dramatic tension and climax, which was the writer's intention. Which means something caught on, somehow. Isn't that worth something?
