I, too, registered with IMDb so I could respond to the first reviewer's analysis. With all due respect, I think this person misunderstood the film. I found this movie to be delightfully quirky--just like the main character. And that's the point of the film. The plot is as fragmented and schizophrenic as she is. If you are looking for a traditional story with a linear plot, this isn't it. But if you can do as the character herself suggests--let yourself go and enjoy the insanity--it is terrific. It's really not that hard to follow the plot. I like the fact that the story is told from different perspectives that are all linked through their own insanity and eccentricities. And maybe "insanity" is too strong a word here. All of us are weird/crazy in our own way, and I think that's what the film is trying to say. It is a funny, poignant, witty glimpse into the odd life of an odd woman. And in the end, all the pieces come together and make sense...mostly. Sure, there are some unanswered questions and ambiguity. But isn't that just like real life? It's not a 10, but it is worth seeing.
