Trivia

Hilary Brougher did not conceptualize the movie as "Lesbian Interest" and did not market it that way. It became 'typed' as such after gay fans approached her at festival circuits. See more »

Quotes

Drew: Isaac says we can't know what will happen.
Ofelia: Forget about Isaac. The line is a delicate chain of cause and effect too precious to break. You live the life, you pay the price. And the price of seeing the future... is seeing the future.

The Emperor has no clothes!
16 July 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Started out fairly interesting, but at about 15 minutes into the film, a case of the low-budgets kicked in and killed the movie. I have nothing against low budgets, mind you, but you must have an interesting story, or characters you can care about in order to get really involved in a film. "El Mariachi" is a good example of what you can do with an ultra-low budget and still make a film that engages the audience.

Woeful acting and editing took me completely out of this film and made me acutely aware that I was watching a low-budget piece of garbage. A silly, nonsensical, "since-it's-science-fiction-I-can-say-whatever-stupid-mumbo-jumbo-I-want-an d-you-have-to-accept-it" story line was the capper on this crapper.
