No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
One of the funniest, most unsettling, most imaginative and most surprisingly affecting movies of its very odd kind I've ever seen.
The dramatic material, overheated to begin with, is hyped up by hysterical acting and further exaggerated by a busy mise-en-scene based on meaningless camera movements and space-destroying zooms.
