A Crackbrained, Surreal Masterpiece
7 October 2019 | by HalPeppercornSee all my reviews

I first watched this, like many others, on the lamented, beloved USA Up All Night program. This is a work of what I refer to as "feral art"; that is, it is unintentionally brilliant, accidentally artful. The movie bleeds an off-kilter, feverish surrealism and feels more like a strange dream than most of your big-budget attempts at translating the fractured, bizarre sense of dreams to the screen. Highly recommended.
