Absurd Behavior
19 April 1999 | by martini-13See all my reviews

When I first saw this movie, I didn't know what to really make of it. It left me speechless, but at the same time, I was curious to watch it again, and watch it again I did. Without giving away the plot, the movie deals with the way we allow our insecurities to rule our lives to the point of absurdity. A fun movie from beginning to end.....
