Gregg Araki dissects the sexual awakening film and the conspiracy theory film to maximum impact. A wild and crazy ride that I found tons of fun.

I don’t really know what to say about this movie because I believe it laughs at itself and I do not think that it ever wants to even try to be good. It is a big joke the whole way through. Most of the acting is bad and the script while sometimes funny is ridiculously bad. The colorful scenes are in your face and so is the constant nudity and sexuality. The ending just falls apart even further and there it leaves the viewer asking what the hell was that. I had high hopes for this movie based on reviews and awards, but it was not worth watching.

"My So-Called Life" and "Mulholland Drive" have a baby. Repetitive rewinding ensues...Highlights: The first two-thirds of the movie. Nearly every character except Smith. Lowlights: The last third of the movie, which takes a sharp turn and plunges off a cliff...The Rec: Visually, this has some fairly nice eye candy and the dialogue crackles with razor sharp wit. All charm is lost, however, when the movie attempts to take itself seriously.
