    I've never even seen this film,but I know even posthumously,Ed would've wanted it the way it is.The mainstream critics are'nt supposed to like Ed's films.Even if they are a cult icon nowadays.I've read every thing I could get my hands on about this movie,and it sounds fantastic.With I may add,an all star cast.Billy Zane,Christina Ricci,Tippi Hedren,and so I've never even seen this film,but I know even posthumously,Ed would've wanted it the way it is.The mainstream critics are'nt supposed to like Ed's films.Even if they are a cult icon nowadays.I've read every thing I could get my hands on about this movie,and it sounds fantastic.With I may add,an all star cast.Billy Zane,Christina Ricci,Tippi Hedren,and so on.Ed,thanks for this Gem in a modern age awash with glib corporate cynisim and utterly unremarkable Hollywood tripe.

    Different from the film Wood would have made, but like his films it is a piece of oddball genius mistaken for trash. Zane is godlike (again).

    That this mime show works better than it should is, in a sense, the ultimate dis.
  2. An amazing artifact; the decor and lighting mix '70s tackiness with odd '50s touches, the sound design is elaborate.

    Presumably Zane & Co. had a lot more fun filming this inexplicable low-budget indulgence than any sane person will have watching it.
