Review/Interview
AnE Vibe The Pulse of Entertainment
by Deborah Buckner  

“This is a haunting film, stripping away the glamour and cocky confidence of the duo as portrayed by Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway in Arthur Penn's classic Bonnie and Clyde.”


September  2007

Review Cinema-Crazed

"The details to keeping the set pieces true to the era seem almost painstaking and it shows through the tiniest detail. Dixie Lee Sedgewick and Dominic Comperatore are a worthy team to portray the couple, as they provide a healthy conflict and volatile chemistry needed to convince audiences, and the two really sell “End of the Line” as a strong drama  ..."
