Storyline

Black comedy about an obsessive street graffiti artist, who falls obsessively in love with a frustrated artist he meets. Unfortunately, rather than trying to meet with her in a conventional way, he decides to mail himself to her with the help of a pet shop owner. Unfortunately, when he arrives, she is with another man, who immediately makes love to her against the box. Then when they decide to open the box, they stab scissors into the box, killing the man. The action then follows that the spirit of the graffiti artist can now communicate only with the artist and, fearfully, she decides she has to get rid of the body. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

It's not THAT bad...
24 November 2000 | by (Atlanta, Ga.) – See all my reviews



This is by no means a great film, but I don't think that it's nearly as bad as the other reviews posted about it. It's a simple little movie with a couple of funny scenes. Fairuza Balk does a good job with the material she was given. As always I enjoyed Jeffrey Jones and I really liked Noah Taylor who I don't believe I've seen before. I did feel that Tea Leoni was wasted though, she can be very funny and she should have had better scenes.

I watched it last night and enjoyed it. It's as simple as that.
