Classic Rudolph
2 March 2002 | by PaulLondonSee all my reviews

One of Alan Rudolph's finest; this is a deliriously atmospheric tale of separated twins, lost love and searching. It is a heady brew propelled by Rudolph's sensitive direction, great performances from Modine and Flynn-Boyle and wonderful cinematography and score. Leisurely paced and dreamy this is not for all tastes but the Romantic vision and pervasive melancholy make it a rewarding piece of cinema.
