oh, goddamnit
10 August 2004 | by (portland, maine) – See all my reviews

I shouldn't respond to this movie. Its a mess, technically, structurally, intellectually... Its like a raw, unaudited page from the diary of a heartbroken man.

And, as poetic a sentiment as that may be, it makes for a strikingly self-indulgent, meandering vanity project. But it got to me. A man loves a woman. She loves him. But she realizes she can't be happy with him. So she leaves. And he, in her absence, creates an improbable interim for them to talk, to kiss, to make love one last time. Its heartfelt enough, and odd enough, an endeavor... 7 out of 10 from me...
