Very confusing
5 August 1999 | by EARmanSee all my reviews

The characters in this film are very interesting but the story is extremely confusing. Apparently the script was adapted from a play and the film feels like a play for the most part. Some plot points do not make sense at all and it took me two viewings before some issues in the story sunk in. Nicol Williamson is great as the lead character. Overall, an interesting but unfulfilling film.
