I watched this movie about five years ago in Women and Film class at Rutgers. Disappointed with the class itself and the lecturer. I was not disappointed by the wide array of films including the Riddles by Laura Mulvey. THe film is bizarre to describe. But I still am drawn to it somehow. I wish it was on video. I even felt the smell from the screen like purple at me. I never smelled a film before. I still would like to see it again for a better perspective. Whether you are interested in the bizarre and unusual aspect of film-making, this film might be for you. It doesn't really have much of a storyline. A woman wants to seek independence from her marriage but is still a mother. I never understood it and still don't but I would love to see it again if I had the opportunity. Laura Mulvey is an acquired taste that we grow accustomed too.
