As it is, it's a silly, if simultaneously deadpan and stomach-churning, psychological portrait of one crazy lady.
As disquieting a portrait of psychosis as has ever spilled across the screen.

Marina de Van will be familiar to some as the screenwriter of François Ozon's 8 Women, but she's a revelation here, and a terrifically disturbing one at that.
like a train wreck, you cannot take your eye (my other on was permanently shut at this point) off of In My Skin.
