Somehow, it works...

I'm apparently the 2nd person to see this movie. In 2 years. But I'm not sorry. It's obviously very low-budget; silly--well, actually, this is one of those movies I describe as "silly, but it *knows* it's silly"; cliched, intentionally (I hope) improbable characters, but somehow it all hangs together. If, like me, you can excuse, or embrace, the schlockiness & deal w/it on its own terms, "My Demon Lover" is very entertaining. If you're looking for a richly detailed plot, laden w/metaphoric symbolism & carefully crafted layers of meaning, complex, realistic-yet-larger-than-life characters on an eternal quest for ever-deepening layers of moral enlightenment, you've obviously wandered in here accidentally--faulty link or something--and ... what? ... no, no, that's alright ... it happens, no prob ... sure ... you have yourself a nice day, now, y'hear? Some very funny lines just cruise right by, all the more effective for being underplayed. The cinematography is frequently very well done, lighting & colors in scene settings used to maximum advantage. Coming from someone who's lived in or near New York City his whole life: they've definitely captured the aura of NYC street scenes. So, anyway, I liked it.
