Quotes

Claire: Somewhere... I don't know where... I turned a corner and there was no turning back. Somewhere I made a mistake.
Kit: Don't mourn it, sweet, it's all right. The marvellous thing about making mistakes is that you can keep making them, the same ones, over and over again.

Pretty strange film.
21 January 2004 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

Mary Lambert's "Siesta" offers plenty of wonderful visuals and a nice amount of sensual atmosphere.A woman in a red dress lies in an airport field,supposedly dead.She wakes.There's blood on her dress,but it doesn't seem to be hers.She can't remember the last few days.As time goes on,the pieces come back to her,and she meets up with some pretty weird people.The plot of "Siesta" is quite confusing and the climax is unpredictable.The acting is alright with Ellen Barkin's excellent performance to boost.Barkin has also some amazing nude scenes,so I wasn't disappointed.Give this one a look.A perfect film to analyze,if you have enough time to waste!
