[Director David] Russo hasn't quite mastered narrative but his compassion for the characters is genuine ...
Caters to those with short attention spans looking for a quick laugh and the film's immediate payoff is just that, but the underlying message still holds some degree of truth.
| Original Score: 4/5
In the cookie-cutter world of movies, it's a pleasure to come across a story you've never encountered before. Or ever will again. A film for which there can be no sequel.
| Original Score: 3/4
A wildly imaginative if erratically executed urban fable.
A 90-minute exercise in heightened reality.
| Original Score: 3/5
Russo deserves some respect for trying to spin a whole movie out of an idea as strange, inspired and possibly repulsive as the one that fuels his feature debut.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
The rough-edged film gets major points for originality. But its ending utterly flames out, as if the filmmakers suddenly found they had nowhere to land, so hit the self-destruct button.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Moves in an entirely unique direction. I love it, in all its sick, twisted glory.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Looking as if it were devised on acid and executed on mushrooms, this imaginative debut feature from the Seattle artist and filmmaker David Russo finds meaning in cleaning and life in dead ends.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
