Unibomber handyman
8 November 1999 | by (Watsonville, California) – See all my reviews

What do you get when a math genius psycho hangs out on a widow's ranch as a handyman just as the movie star daughter comes home to get away from being an image worship and just be a daughter? A chilling insightful movie about people either trying to find themselves or run away into fantasy. Fans of the latter will hate this movie, while those who like self examination and introspection might find it both rewarding and, at moments, amusing when the characters make a genuine offhand comment.
