In the commentary, director Henry Jaglom mentions the horror anthology film 'Dead of Night (1945)' was one of his inspirations. In that film, an architect has deja vu over meeting a group of people, and they in turn share their own supernatural stories. See more »
To cheat oneself out of love is the most terrible deception, it is an eternal loss for which there is no reparation, neither in time or eternity.

This movie reminds me of a Woody Allen film, only the actors haven't a script to memorize. They are given a rough outline of the story and are asked to improvise and we'll see how it all ends up. The premise of the story is pretty good; the implementation is fairly awful.
There is very little background music, so the talkiness of the piece seems to become unbearable. If I had heard Dana say one more time, "What are you doing here?" I thought I'd throw something at the TV.
The best things about the movie were the comments my wife and I made a'la Mystery Science Theater 3000. And its a shame that the nicest person in the film, the blond wife of the love interest was given such short rift. She was best thing about the movie.
But if you like films where the selfish pursuit of self-interests, others be damned, is glorified, you'll want to suffer through this one.
