A bit too arty and concerned with quasi-historical detail to catch fire as a romance (doomed or otherwise), and too yawningly familiar in its major chord plotting to set sail as a honest character ensemble.
For all its vivid evocation of its characters' tomorrow-we-die bonhomie, the film finally never quite convinces viewers of its central subject: the sisterly, almost sapphic bond between Vera and Caitlin.
More a Gary Springer sex brawl than a Blitzkrieg bohemian romp, with Dylan mainly playing incorrigibly horny and urinating on house plants. And a court duel from nowhere, with the entire free love posse nastily at each other's throats. Paging Nancy Grace.
