Do you remember the line "I depend on the kindness of strangers"? Well, of course it is from Tennessee Williams "A Streetcar Named Desire, and sums up the meaning of the whole play. As it does sum up the meaning of this film. It's about the fight of imagination and reality and again reality wins. Or so it seems.
If this film has any flaw it's the crime story woven around its center. The gay-hating killer seems an overused cliché nowadays but at the time of the film's production it was probably more than a symbol.
Nevertheless, the film moves at least me even a decade after it was made. If not a masterpiece, at least a very, very good film.
