Quotes

Claudine Van Doozen: You know, I had this science teacher once, when I was back in junior high school. I spent the entire year ignoring the man. Except that there was one thing that he said that I will always, always remember. He talked about this law. You know, this 'law' that governed the whole, wide universe. The way it worked is that, all things that mattered would be returned. You know, that matter itself isn't created or destroyed. It just lasts forever. We may not recognize them anymore, but they come back.
Claudine Van Doozen: [...]

Much better than expected
2 May 2001 | by BLKahunaSee all my reviews

This is a surprisingly great movie.

Christina Applegate's performance as well as that of Stephano are extremely well done and offer great depth. The characters are interesting and the many ancillary characters help to create a slightly bizarre atmosphere.

I thought the screenplay, direction, cinematography and sound were all top notch and added a lot to the overall feeling of the movie. The camera work, especially, was very creative and interesting.

This is not a feel good movie and it dances at the edge of the darkside of humanity. If you feel like an interesting, off-the-beaten-path, moody flick - this is a good choice.
