One viewing is just not enough
24 September 2001 | by (Farmington, Maine) – See all my reviews

I have seen this movie several times and enjoy it more each time. It is quirky and bizarre, but it is the symbolism that draws me in each time. Carefully placed symbols permeate the movie, from roadkill, to butterflies, to an overgrown garden, to fish bait (once you see the movie you'll understand), to even Dash Pepper's leg cast. The three main characters are wonderfully constructed: Fairuza Balk as Doris Lenny von Dohlen as Jack, her boyfriend, and Will Patton as Dash Pepper (in yet another great performance), Doris' lover and Jack's best friend. One of the most telling lines, I think, is when Dash tells Doris that they are both a bit damaged, and they are. This movie is about relationships and how they can be altered by a simple twist of fate, about healing, and about letting go of the past to embrace the future. One viewing is just not enough.
