Wow.
21 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

A powerful image of homelessness and psychosis, in this movie we are presented with a paranoid schizophrenic who cannot let go of her delusions. We are brought into her world and are allowed to see an intimate portrayal of this woman. It is not exploitive. It is merely a powerful portrait of a very real person with very real problems, who chooses to deal with them by adopting an unreal view of her world.

The film is thought provoking and simple, although the emotion it evokes are far from simple. The filmmaker himself says he cannot give a Hollywood happy ending, and he does not. It is a postmodern biography of stark realism.
