one line summary
7 November 2003 | by pancake_repairmanSee all my reviews

This movie is just nuts. It's a true original. It has so many little things that are just stupid and seem to have no point, but is ultimately tied together as a serious drama, which is really weird. Even movies that defy convention conform to some rules, but this is just all over the map and I love it. The bald girl losing her wig was both puzzling and hilarious both times it happened. It makes you wonder why such a ridiculously juvenile comedic device was used in such inappropriate circumstances, and I guess that may well be the whole point of it. It actually did hold together as a serious drama despite the odd tangents, which is all the more impressive.
