I saw this movie on the movie channel and unfortunately missed the first few minutes of the film but found the rest of it intriguing. None of it made any sense, of course but I found myself unable to turn it off. The whole thing had a dreamlike quality to me. What the heck was the bug lady doing in this film, anyway? Was the lead guy a mob boss or a tap dancer turned to crime in order to make a living?
In spite of the shortcomings, I really liked the soundtrack. Especially haunting were the songs by the Tiger Lillies.
My advice is to forget the movie and buy the soundtrack (if you can find it anywhere - which I have not been able to do).
