Did You Know?


The sequence "George and Sophia" was originally the first one shot. One year later, the improvisational style of the rest of the film made it feel too scripted, and so it became the last sequence to be re-shot, in order to more closely match the tone of the rest of the film. See more »

Powerful, Unique, and Raw
27 July 2002 | by (Santa Monica, CA) – See all my reviews

A very powerful film. While some moments were stronger than others, it's a really good movie -- dark, provocative, disturbing, and also uplifting. The way they managed to shoot the whole film entirely from the home movie camera's POV--with no cut-aways--gave it a feeling of raw realism. It was a bit reminiscent of the Dogma films. You get the sense that the characters are real people, not actors. Speaking of real, a fight scene about half-way through the movie looked as strong and disturbing as any violent sequence I've seen on film. Cathryn de Prume is amazing as the Russian hooker, and her emotional transformation leading to the ending was moving and funny at the same time. I can't remember seeing anything quite like this film before.
