Storyline

An ordinary-looking guy proves to be an unusually successful womanizer, and his East Village apartment begins to assume aspects of Grand Central Station. He is so attractive to one of the women he seduces that he has to let her know in a forceful way that he's not available for long-term romance. In addition to his other good qualities, he's a bit of a jerk. Written by Ulf Kjell Gür

An interesting look at personal relationships
21 July 2008 | by alecchristieSee all my reviews

I loved this film. I love the use of pixelvision, the way it obscured the image and gave the audience an impression of the scene rather than a clear view of what was going on. This effectively reflected the central character's lack of clarity over his relationships. I also liked the use of cartoon footage, the elephant, the music and the central metaphor. When I watched this back in 1994 at the Warwick Arts Centre the audience was compelled and engaged by the film. Yes it is experimental but the central theme is one we can all relate to which was dealt with in a clever, innovative and unique way. The use of the Fisher-Price PXL2000 camera just goes to show that even in the digital age despite our obsession with high definition images as long as a story is well told the end result will be compelling. I don't think the choice of camera was a gimmick, as I said before I think the pixelation reflected the central character's own lack of clarity.
