This is the sound of a filmmaker wrestling (transparently) with ideas, talking at but not quite down to his audience.

[An] earnest, often moving but not totally successful film.

Well written and acted ensemble film. Deserved to do so much better at the box office.
| Original Score: 5/5

Very much an ensemble-driven zeitgeist film like Kasdan's previous Big Chill, this serio comedy about urban angst in contemporary LA may be a bit pretentious in its symbolic aspirations, but it proved prophetic in some of its ideas.

If this disaster-packed parable often smacks of melodramatic contrivance, it does at least benefit from solid performances and direction, and a leavening line in sardonic humour.

For long stretches of this offbeat and innovative film, the viewer truly has no idea what will happen next and many reasons to care.

It maps these dark, desperate, fearful times with comic and terrifying veracity, and holds out a glimmer of hope for the soul-searching survivors of the '90s.
