Storyline

In contemporary Houston, Julia Barker and her husband live paycheck to paycheck; she delivers meals on wheels and works Bingo nights. She's stressed. She's gotten over-weight and doesn't recognize the puffy and tired face she sees in the mirror. She's having migraines and blackouts, and she's seeing visions - of a desolate room. Suddenly she leaves for New York City, checks into a cheap hotel, and goes in search of the room. She follows any sign she can find: a sudden encounter with an old friend, a meditation group, a Tarot reading, and an invitation to a party. Is she getting closer? But to what?

It didn't feel like I wasted my time
20 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

I have included unwanted information about the ending, it's not direct, therefore I don't really know if it is a spoiler or no OK, first of all, I can understand that this movie has such a low rating. But I'm afraid I can't agree with it. The movie is somewhat very different from what people are used to see. I saw this movie at LIFFe which is a film festival held at the city where I live. I wanted to see this movie because it is supposed to be experimental.

The film itself has a very minimal approach, which I would blame on the budget. But it's not my job to go into technical specs. The movie takes on a completely different approach, the movie does not answer questions that are raised, this is why it is unique. Some people find it horrible to watch because the movie is somewhat more visual and there is very little dialog. The movie leaves everything to your imagination and along the way it gives some small hints which may steer you. I really loved the ambient that the movie creates, the sound scape was great. If you wish to see a movie that obeys no logic and obeys no formula for making a movie, I think this is what you should go and see. It is an experiment more than is a film.

Rating 7/10
