Great little movie with brutal relationship honesty...
18 May 2003 | by dwpollarSee all my reviews

1st watched 5/18/2003 - 8 out of 10(Dir-Roberto Benabib): Great little movie with brutal relationship honesty(aka. Is anything final?). Basically what this movie is about is people being involved with one another because they want sex, because they're obsessed, or because they want to be loved. It's all of these and then some for this twisted, topsy-turvy dramatic comedy. What makes this movie great will not sell DVD's but deserves a permanent part in movie history because of it's suttle unique & realistic storyline about life & love in an actual big city(San Francisco) that becomes little because of the intertwined relationships that occur throughout the movie. This movie doesn't need extras or anything else. It stands on it's own as a unique story with a good, what's going to happen next, finale. The players in this film are really good at just letting the story tell itself and not masking it with over-acting but just doing their job. This was definetly lost in the shuffle when it came out, but deserves to be recognized for what it is. A good movie.
