wonderfully quirky and complex
10 March 2007 | by jrcoxxSee all my reviews

Since my first viewing of this film, I have never been quite able to get it out of my mind. The principal characters interact in simultaneously theatrical and believable fashions, and Genevieve Bujold as the crazy "Doctor Love" is simply irresistible. David Carradine is a sympathetic nut-case -- not an easy job to pull off, and Lesley Anne Warren is both strong and incredibly vulnerable. If you like a film with continuous contrasts and quirky ensemble cast, this is the movie for you. but don't hold out for a happy ending, even though you might? get one... wonderfully quirky and complex, this film bears many a repeat viewing. You will discover something new every time, nd, if you pay close attention, is sure to become a favorite.
