The story lacked realism.
This movie is more than a little sick, but is vastly entertaining and held my attention from start to end. Julia Ormond and Bill Pullman pull out all the stops in their respective performances. The use of sound and image propels the pace of the film that seems to take more twists and turns than one can imagine. Interestingly and off-beat original, the movie packs a wallop. It is impossible to deny the craft and talent behind this mind twist of a movie.
But, be warned -- take this ride at your own risk. Extra bonus points for exceptional use of "Add It Up" by The Violent Femmes. Sick, wrong and fun to watch.
