A script that deserved better, 27 July 2000
Author: xilk from Helsinki, Finland

A disappointment, I must say, since it's based on a play by Jeff Noon, one of my favourite writers. A psychedelic futurism is sought, with lots borrowed from A Clockwork Orange, but the weird photography doesn't quite fly and it does all get a bit stagey. The cast is very good though, but again, the performances are more theatrical than cinematic. The script is in itself quite oddball enough, and could have taken a more deadpan, or highstrung, or subtle rendering. Just imagine Kubrick behind the camera. Some very memorable moments, my favourite: the prince visiting the newlyweds. It should have been better, but it's still worth seeing (for those who like this sort of thing); ordinary it ain't.
