From a psychiatric ward, tutor & proofreader Gaby Winters elaborately recounts an evening spent babysitting a 16 year old girl--an evening that results in the girl's disappearance. While Gaby's story is recorded to video, she tells of her urgent attempts to relocate the missing teen before her parents return home. Gaby's search is set to a tapestry of snaking subplots: the unlikely spy hunting down an envelope, the eloping girl he exploits, her doting mother, the military husband, his pious mistress, an abducted woman, and the ailing fiancé wandering around in a karate gi bent on beating a man he mostly-believes is banging his girl. Gaby's story--infused with anarchy--will climax memorably, or so she intends. Written by Anonymous

Comedy that always keeps you on your toes...
30 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Maddening movie. In a good way. Almost a psycho-drama or comedy. And lots going on. Like a puzzle movie in some way. Like a comedy of manners in others... Always keeps you on your toes, challenges you to stay with it. It does what it wants and is better for it. And I think it actually works better when you stop trying to make sense of it and allow it to wash over you. And just revel in its amusing, digressive narrative spasms. Or whatever. There is a lot of nuance here, all in all, and I found that a second viewing really deepened my appreciation of this risky, bleak, and funny film: about a crazy girl wanting to tell us a crazy story, and hoping we like her because of it...
