A twisted family of watchers
3 April 1999 | by (Sacramento, California) – See all my reviews

This is one twisted family. The 18 year old son Van is involved with his father's live in lover, and his father's phone sex fantasy woman. The family's story is told as if it is all recorded on video and played back in no particular order. The story is very compelling, Van is especially endearing, but the movie is very strange. Still, I recommend it.
