A confusing and boring 90 minutes.
10 January 2006 | by sdmathSee all my reviews

This movie is so unfocused and confusing that I tried to leave after 45 minutes. As previously noted, the plots of sex identity confusion and sadism is loosely, if at all, joined, and the images are disturbing apparently solely for the purpose of being disturbing. The acting is unfortunately sub-par and the screenplay fails to make any of the characters relatable. The story line is implausible, the dialogue forced and at times laughable, and the movie experience intolerable. I often find myself wondering why more art house/independent films don't find a wider release...and then I think about this movie and realize why.
