Trivia:
The performance piece that Christine Jesperson submits to the museum, in which she admits her failings to a cheering crowd, was also one of several vignettes in a sound-based art project by Miranda July. This project was played on a loop in the elevators of the Whitney Museum of American Art, as part of the museum's 2000 biennial exhibition.See more »

misfits who fit together, 25 January 2005
Author: Janean (mjanean) from United States

I had the good fortune to see this film last night at a Sundance Film Festival screening in Salt Lake City. Having viewed a few of Miranda July's shorts on her website), I hoped this film would live up to the level set there. It does. July plays the lead character in what turns out to be an ensemble of people, each with his/her own quirks, who are somehow linked together (most simply by being neighbors). This movie is made up of what might be a string of perfect little short films. Each scene builds on the previous scene, adding one more enticing facet to a personality; one more little twist to a story. By the final scene, each character has as much depth and complexity as some of the real people we know. Indeed, one might wish that everyone was as interesting as the characters in this film.
