I really really liked this movie which I saaw at the Nantucket Film Festival. I especially liked the scenes with the hilarious Spalding Gray and Adrienne Shelley (one of my faves of all time!). The director seems to know a lot about mental illness and he unravels the plot like a good Hitchcock suspense film, and it's also beuatifully shot. Highly recommended viewing if you like films that are dark, funny, and a little brutal. (I do!)
