slightly strange, dark comedy that sort of swings past you without quite revealing what its all about, or sinking its teeth into anything. too pedestrian to be fantasy, but too heightened to be realistic.
very compelling though with good performances from all. anna paquin is a slightly unnerving lolita character that makes you doubt yourself... phoenix is usually pretty good, and no different here.... my favourite, though, was ed harris with his deluded/damaged/dim-witted(?) officer.
i also very much enjoyed the setting, as somewhere/when that hasn't seen much movie time.
i'm rambling. not sure exactly why i liked it, but i did.
