SHOTGUN STORIES is much better than the other Spirit-nominated films I've seen so far this year. That's not to say it's great, there are a lot of rough edges, and it's certainly not original (half-brothers from two families fight each other), but at least it's competent, which is more than I can say for some of the other nominees.

The acting ranges from pretty good to pretty weak, with most of the major parts being the good part, and the minor roles a lot weaker. Unfortunately, being more of a genre film than a real drama, it's a lot more predictable than it should be.
