interesting movie
2 October 2007 | by (london) – See all my reviews

amazing negative comment i just read here about this movie..... i couldn't agree less- it's indie-fayre - and it's unconventional narrative in the strong sense of the word- it's good because you can leave it and it's working on several levels - so don't try and reduce it to one single rational story.

If i had a criticism of it it is that it stereotypes mental illness as always being something around uncontrollable feelings of murder, blood and sharp knives - this is it's biggest flaw for me and in a way it's a BIG flaw and totally unforgivable. i could imagine why it was booed in San Francisco because many dated mainstream films used to portray gay protagonists in this light. but the director does play with this expectation, leaving you guessing about the outcome.

As a gay love affair its optimistic in it's conclusions - and as a portrait of intimacy it is very brave and rich.
