Mark Rappaport makes movies that look, sound and feel like nobody else's movies. He is an original.

An ironic and sometimes hilarious melodrama.

Top Critic

Producer, writer, and director Rappaport, unfortunately, falls into the trap of believing that a film can only be artistic if its characters are artistic as well.

This film should appeal to urban dwellers.
