I thought this movie was a terribly dark and funny look at the media. Though it is not a movie for everyone, I do encourage cinephiles to seek it out. It is a brave movie, with absolutely addictive characters. Don McKellar gives one of his best performances as a dry humored, sleazy, but lovable- reminiscent of Peter Sellers. Nicole De Bouer is the quintessential eighties new wave girl- she nails her performance right down to the dancing. Nadia Litz is shockingly good (I had seen her in Love That Boy- she is 100% different in this movie- like a petite Jennifer Connolly). All in all, I am surprised that this film did not get more attention. Though perhaps people found it too disturbing and bleak- which it is- but also funny as hell. I loved it and recommend it to people who like to laugh at humanities darker side. The film maker Kris Lefcoe should be one to watch.
