User Reviews

annoyed by the abstract
17 February 1999 | by (Bountiful, Utah) – See all my reviews

A little disgusted at all the productive coughing and mucus dripping throughout the film, and I was annoyed at how unsure I was as to whether Luke Perry's wife watched him during the throws of passion with Gale, or if it was a director's maneuver to show us that she suspected. A few too many abstractions there. Why did Chrystie meet up with Gale? This interlude seemed odd. An interesting plot, but the acting bothered me.
