The sweet embrace of schadenfreude
My own personal Greg Lindley-Jones says his new movie is about “the power of dreaming.” If that doesn’t dissuade you from seeing Dustin Lance Black’s directorial debut, perhaps the uniformly bad reviews will.
There are so many moving parts spinning in so many directions that this movie’s purpose is inscrutable and the noise of its grinding parts distracting.
New York TimesShotguns so many elements onto the screen that it’s difficult to know which to follow, cheer for or hate.Paste MagazineBlack’s overactive melodrama is more than a representation of schizophrenia; it’s the embodiment of it.
Time Out New YorkGive a young auteur some indie pull and look what happens: Strictly recommended to anyone who needs to see a schizophrenic single mother robbing a bank in a gorilla mask and housedress.
