so boring
24 February 2004 | by miffymentalSee all my reviews

shot on video, it was impossible to sit through this film comprised of dialogue scenes. the sections do not cohere, the camera hardly moves. some dialogues are interesting but it would be better to read the script, than to sit through this grainy, still film. a true test of perseverance.
