Over the top "artisitic" techniques, No story, Excellent Acting
This is such a self-consciously hokey piece of "art" that I could hardly make myself watch it. The sad thing is the acting from almost everyone - especially Edie Falco --is top rate. The story line, the editing, the HORRIBLE "noir" music, the excruciatingly long and stylized camera shots, numerous sunbursts and cheap film 101 expressions are decidedly amateurish and immature. I might have concocted something like this myself when I was 20 years old and in film school, but that - like this tawdry piece of trash -- would have been nothing more than a masturbatory indulgence for my own fledging ego, and neither a communicative nor powerful expression of emotive film making. Blech.
