As revealed in the DVD commentary, there was originally a scene that would have had her character masturbating out of boredom, 'but Robin Tunney''s father nixed that idea quickly. See more »

Well,the film is total baloney,but at least it's entertaining baloney.The film was also kind of aykward to me. It has moments I thought were great. The music is perfect for the film,too. Without Robin Tunney,this film would've badly suffered. She just overwhelmed me with how she grew more and more sexy as the time progressed. She tells Blake Nelson,it's the Yoga. She is quirky,vulnerable,and defines her character's situation adequately. I loved watching her work the film over. She brings life to a film that could've easily folded without that right performance. The film works best when she is going through the rough transition of living trapped in her rundown apartment. The director proves the film's style best evoking the inner struggle to retain sanity in confines with limitted interaction with people. Finn Taylor is able to capture with her camera(using a lot of quick cuts and time lapsing)the days weighing on Tunney as if time is the ultimate enemy. I enjoyed the film despite it's easy moments of logic lunacy..mainly the part where Tunney finds the person who put her in the situation. This reprise of sorts to "Run Lola Run" really was too much for me to accept. The relationship with Blake Nelson(her collar agent) and Richard Gill(the gay crippled little man)are the definate means that keep this film afloat. ***1/2/*****
