Trivia

Barker shot the film in NY City with a tiny crew of seven people over the period of a full year, through all four seasons. He and his staff had first interviewed nearly a thousand candidates for the leads, picked four after an arduous process, then edited the transcripts of their video interviews, and shot the final film on film carefully directing them in the new truthful, but more dramatic script.

The surprise hit of 1998 independents
22 January 1999 | by Steve-257See all my reviews

I disagree with Kobenhavn. But I produced the movie, so why wouldn't I? Let me point out the film played for 5 months in one theater in New York, 2 months in theaters in San Francisco and Chicago, and received rave reviews from nearly every important critic. "Fascinating and highly original…on all counts, one of the most interesting films this year". (Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader). "One of the most original films of the year". (David Denby, New York Magazine). "Sharp, funny, sad, haunting, fascinating, Lurid, and voyeuristic". (Owen Gliberman, Entertainment Weekly). And so on.
