03.03.15Netflix I figured since I'm a fan of Mottola's recent work that I should go back and watch his first movie. Wow what a wave of 90s indie-ness. Parker Posey, grainy film stock, lots of hand-held. It feels like the birth of Miramax all over again.

As for the movie: the cast is good, the story is alright... it's just SO indie. Low budget... some of the ADR doesn't match well at all, even the titles... everything screams new York film school student to me. I guess the raw feeling of the rough edges are an artifact of a time and place in the story of film: that 90s explosion of indie films after Sex, Lies & Videotape when being a hit at Sundance all of a sudden meant something.
