Storyline

Like Polanski's heroine in Repulsion, Susannah York's character is one that is seemingly haunted by memories of undisclosed magnitude. These memories are perhaps rooted in some sort of past sexual turmoil that causes York's character to see men as inherently the same. Written by Ed <repulsion2000@yahoo.com>

spellbinding
3 April 2004 | by (Mississippi, United States) – See all my reviews

This is an art film that experiments with dreamlike imagery. Many viewers might turn it off in frustration within twenty minutes,but I couldn't take my eyes off it. Altman's film plays with the idea of showing us the mind of Cathryn as a display to observe. We get twists upon twists and it's done in such a labyrinthine maze. We have no foundation to stand on,her mind just keeps feeding us hallucinations. I was compelled throughout the whole film taking every frame into my mind. It is one of the strangest,most fascinating portraits of the mind that I have ever seen. It just never stops delivering puzzling images and the film takes no shape depending instead on surreal happenings. This is Altman's artifice..he simply provides twists to keep us wondering what will happen next. As characters come and go,we are left wondering what will pop into her mind next.My favorite Altman film..a mesmerizing masterpiece of the disturbed mind and what can fluctuate from it. *****/*****
