    I kind of thought the plot of missing man rescuing little kids was stupid. Why did he let him go and not take the money?

    ‘I don’t really mind living this way: quiet, not much to say. But sometimes every once in a while, I remember back to when I had you’.

    I loved this movie. Slow, isn’t always bad. Great acting, good story. Michael Shannon is great.

    This film was a real treat. Film noir at its finest. Thank you to everyone who had a role in it. The last line brought tears to my eyes (very unexpectedly).

    I was lucky enough to see ‘The Missing Person’ at the Edinburgh Film Festival today with a Q&A from Noah Buschel afterwards.

    I really enjoyed the film. It had everything that you’d expect to see in a classic film noir in terms of it’s visual style, characters and narrative, but also managed to be something fresh and contemporary at the same time. The dialogue was wonderful, the story gripped you in from the first scene, the film has a great sense of humour, and Michael Shannon was incredible in the leading role.

    Buschel seemed shy and reserved in the Q&A, but he gave a real insight into the themes of loss and alienation in post-9/11 America that he tried to portray in ‘The Missing Person’ so I’m glad I stayed to listen to him.

    If you’re a fan of American indie cinema or just generally interested in the mystery and film noir genre, I’d definitely say it’s a must see.

    interesting cast there….

    Robert Knepper and Paul Adelstein, both from Prison Break (hehe excellent!). Also Liza Weil who used to be in Gilmore Girls and is now married to Paul Adelstein. They didn’t meet on the set to this film tho, did they?

    I realize it’s just started filming, but here’s hoping that it’ll have a DVD release or something of the sort eventually. Being a fan of Steven Marcus’ work, I’m just glad to see him working in yet another film right now, and hope this one goes over well. :@ )
