If you like experimental films or Anger's other films, you will be very interested in this one too. If you're like me and can't stand having to sit through experimental stuff, skip this one too, if you're even reading this.
Really easy to watch and light for Kenneth Anger, but he really has a hard time finding the middle ground in his messages. I'd love to see something by him that's not obvious beyond belief. This piece just loves to make fun of fashion and vanity, there's no other possible conclusion. The visuals make the movie what it is, but I just couldn't say it's my taste.
A chubby Isabella Rosselini type takes her time choosing a sparkly evening dress, then takes her dogs for a walk. I laughed, I cried, I closed the YouTube window.
