Not Your Average Movie
4 June 2004 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

I came across this title on cable one night and noticed that it was produced by Allison Anders, who directed a couple interesting movies in the early 90's, and featured Tara Subkoff from "All Over Me" and a really interesting supporting cast including Sandra Bernhart (in a rare film role), Susan Tyrell, Kristi Swanson, and Renee Humphrey. It isn't really a good movie--parts of it are rather implausible and the end is pretty disappointing--but it has a strange and interesting feel to it. It lacks the heightened drama and rigid three-act structure of a typical Hollywood movie. It's very subtle and surprisingly non-exploitative, especially considering it's sordid subject matter. Yet it isn't some arty,pretentious feminist claptrap either(like the overrated "Working Girls" a few years earlier). It seems to somehow be more "real" than your typical movie. It contains real characters (albeit in a pretty unusual situation) whose lives don't really seem to going anywhere in particular and whose problems you know are not going to be resolved after two hours. It kind of reminded me of "Ghost World" (the comic book more than the movie). It's probably not a real easy movie to find, but it's definitely worth finding.
