When Lucy tosses the grenade over the counter in the restaurant and it goes off, she puts her hands to her face. In the next shot that focuses on her she lowers her hands. But when the shot changes to Ninotchka her hands are back by her face. See more »
Amy, I think you identify with Lucy Diamond. I think she sees your pathos. You've got some dangerous union symbiosis going on- What's that movie with Jodie? And the little dog falls in the well with the lotion?
Silence of the lambs.
You're the lamb, Amy.

I was fortunate enough to see this movie at the Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. The movie is WONDERFUL- sure, it is as substantial as cotton candy, but it is GREAT to see a summer-blockbuster-type action film that spoofs so many
clichés, never takes itself seriously, and treats its lesbian characters with respect. The writer/director Angela Robinson spoke at the screening and indicated that the film will get a theatrical release, but the distributor is having trouble marketing the film because they don't know which market to target- teenagers, gays, etc. In short, if you think this campy action film will appeal to you GO SEE IT in its opening weekend (to be announced) to send a message to the studios that
taking a risk on an unusual, fun film like this was well worth it. Oh, and the music is great too! The soundtrack features 80's classics from New Order, Erasure, and The Cure, as well as contemporary stuff from
Fischerspooner, Goldfrapp etc.
