Storyline

Half Spirit, a young woman who's spent the past year handcuffed to a radiator by her husband, begins to hear the voice of a spider named Jimminy. She escapes from captivity and falls in love with Gil, a drug dealer traveling to swap drugs for plutonium. She follows him, afraid to approach. She is followed by Badfly, who pushes women off of ledges, convinced that they can fly; he unsuccessfully tries to kill her, then falls for her. Gil is also followed by Priest, a demonic Catholic father with a penchant for pain. The whole sordid tale is narrated by Half Spirit as she writes the tale on her naked body as she lies dying in a hospital. Written by James Meek <james@oz.net>

dark, disturbing, and wonderful
14 March 2001 | by mrlovecraft31See all my reviews

i thought this film was realy great and im amazed to see it here. I saw it at a film festival in san jose, ca. I have always wanted to get this film on video so if anyone has any leads let me know. The film revolves around an abused woman whos final escape leads her down a road she could never have imagined and neither can we the audience. The plot unravels itself from her perspective as she writes down the story on her naked body in a room somewhere. Im not gonna tell you anymore than that except to say it was emotionaly powerful and i would recommend it to anyone who likes dark and powerful films.
