Storyline

Unable to accept that she doesn't want to see him anymore, Joe threatens to shoot himself in the head at his ex-lover's apartment door, but is not expecting her to then attack him. He drops his gun, which is picked up by a neighbour, Dick, who fancies himself a bit of a he-man; not wanting to give up this golden opportunity, he contemplates intervening and killing Joe, but settles for closing his door and waving the gun around in his flat. With his first suicide attempt thwarted, Joe drags Wendy up onto the roof, and menaces her with a nail-gun, while the alerted police try to talk him out of it. Backed into a corner, he ends up being pushed over the edge by Wendy, and is heading for the safety of an air-cushion... Written by Cynan Rees <cynanrees@hotmail.com>

Whacky film, funny disturbing with a real twist ending
5 February 2000 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This really got me. A film you can watch more than once and see something you missed first time around. It's like David Lynch has made a Quentin Tarrantino film. Violent, funny, sick, whacked out with a hell of an ending
