    A riveting tale of a onetime vivacious personality, described by those who knew her as "stunning," "lovely," and "very well liked," but who nevertheless died alone, friendless and seemingly missed by nobody.

    Ethically, it's a good movie because it shows us the humanity of those forgotten/isolated by society. It's a humane mission to try and examine what can make a person's life so empty they end up dying young and alone. One of the central elements is dreams of pop stardom. Dreams that have no real connection to what society can 'do for us'. In that way the life dreamed for was not achievable and the result was a collapsed void of a sleep. Maybe someone could have 'woken her up' by instilling truly a more natural and fulfilling dream. Aesthetically, it's a good movie because the images are well shot and the soundtrack is memorable. For anyone interested in how isolation happens, it's good. It doesn't provide an answer, so you may find yourself wasting your time. I guess the (positive) message is that there are not necessarily any reason or any monsters. It 'just happened'. But knowing it can go this way by nature, we should engage in our neighbours' lives and keep things on track for the better. Full Review »
