A Thought Provoking Dramatic Work
Verified purchase
This DVD is horribly misadvertised as a Psychological Thriller. This was obviously a pathetic ploy by the DVD distributor to get the DVD off the shelves by any means necessary with no thought to doing the consumer, nor the film any justice. The result is that people are watching this film with entirely the wrong mindset.

This film is a dramatic look at the lives and relationships (or lack of relationships) of the four main characters. It is a thought provoking look into what can happen when we allow ourselves to dwell within our personal misery to the point that we can no longer connect to those around us. The acting, writing, cinematography and direction are excellent, and the film is riddled with beautifully captured momments of life to which so many people can relate. If you are looking for a shallow sexy thriller, see Basic Instinct or Sliver. But if you are someone who appreciates the simplistic intracacies of what makes up the soul of a person...this movie is an excellent choice for you.

I purchased this movie, it was rather slow and boring. I ending was rather surprising, oh now remember why I purchased this movie, it was on sale for under $10 dollars.

About the frailty of human relationships; great film from Sundance
Verified purchase
This is a set piece. Very little happens, so if you like plot-heavy films, it’s not for you. If you like films driven by characters, it’s great. It’s about four people stuck in time and circumstance, about the frailty of human relationships, about how we seldom really communicate what needs to be said. All of the performances are startling. People will be especially blown away by Sharon Stone. She can really act.

Horrible Movie
Verified purchase
This had to be one of the worst movies that I have seen-its extremely boring and the characters are as dull as the film.
No plot to speak of and you can't tell if the Bill character is dreaming or actually awake. Please don't waste your money even on a rental
