Susan Emshwiller did a wonderful job with this, her directorial debut! I was lucky to catch this at the Newport Beach Film Festival for the world premiere. I thought the concept was original, bizarre, and well-executed considering the small budget. The music score by Ego Plum was also a hit with the crowd. It's the kind of film David Lynch might have made in his early days of avant-garde cinema. I saw a 35mm print which was made from a super 16mm negative, so there was a very small amount of grain, but overall it looked great. Let's hope this film gets a dvd release so many more can discover it. Highly recommended for fans of bizarre comedies -- without the exploitation, thank goodness!
