I'm rolling very high today, and consequently getting a bunch of these recent purchases. This one I think I saw a few parts of on IFC or something but have never seen it straight through, so I'm pretty excited! And it's under two hours long so I'll be able to get one more in after this, which is great. Let's do it.

As it turns out, I'd only seen the last few minutes, which is maybe a shame since it's quite different from the rest of the film. I didn't think the whole thing would be that experimental, but I also didn't know it was such a Day for Night type movie. I think I like movie-about-movie movies more than the average dude, but they can tend to become a little familiar after a while. This has enough of those 90s stylistic touches (not to mention a ton of latex catsuits with hilarious foley work) to give it an identity.

There may be more to say here, but it's quite late and I want to roll the dice one more time.
