Watchlist keeps growing no matter how hard I try.
What's great about this movie is that both main characters, De Niro's and Grodin's, are cynical, resigned, and tired of it all- and yet they both have hopes and dreams for the future that are sweet and idyllic (which they obviously keep very private). Neither of them wants to engage in the events that unfold in this movie, but they are forced into it by their life situations. The tension between what the characters want vs. what actually happens is…
Bears more resemblance to abstract Dada films than an actual horror movie. It was an experiment. It was cheap to make. I don’t fault the filmmakers for trying something different, but not every experiment works, and I truly hope I never have to see another film like this. I also hope I never have to see the word “liminal” in a review (or maybe anywhere) again. And what the hell does the film’s title mean/refer to?
