I saw this film at a screening in Portland, OR. It is defiantly not for everyone. But, if you are into edgy, uncomfortable, visual, alternate cinema, then you should check it out. The direction is stylish and crisp and lighting and production values are surprisingly high for a film of this apparent low budget. The acting is also quite good with British actress Sammi Davis giving quite a stunning and BRAVE performance in the lead. Too bad we don't see more of her these days. Like a train wreck, the film is hard not to turn away from and if you like both artistic and in-your-face film-making, you should "enjoy" this bold expression of an offbeat story.
