confusing little film
23 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

it took me several viewings to understand what was going on in the piece, but with time came enlightenment - really quite a thought-provoking and slightly creepy film. the focus of the movie - which consists of many smaller scenes - is the meeting of three individuals at a party, and the strange interactions that take place between them. Gillian Anderson does, in my opinion, the best job out of the three actors; she's very tiny and cute, with a high voice and just a hint of an accent. the film stays with the viewer, somehow - the last scene is especially compelling.

it was odd. I liked it.
