This one's a disappointment for Metzger fans. Although it often reveals his wonderful visual and editing flair, the expected satiric touch is completely missing. The dialogue is often laughable rather than fleetingly ephemeral, the characters pitiable rather than amusing in their self-absorption. It ends up being more of a failed melodramatic attempt at Antonioni-like alienation than the giddy, playful, yet incisive later works of this director.
