| wonderful writing...
I was pleased to catch this film on Sundance Channel. This film features such rich writing, and as a movie is artful and entertaining. The directing supports the unconventional script very well. I wonder where I can get it on DVD? Or read the original play? I liked the entire movie, but several scenes stood out to me. The first scene with the woman who feels tragic events before they happen was moving and engaging. I liked the sex addict scene as well, for its bluntness and innate humor. Like with all the writing in the film, the detail really allows you to imagine the scene of the stories being told. I almost wish we were able to see those stories play out, as told by the characters in their individual vignettes. The hotel room scene was smart and full of life and tension, aided by the interaction of the main character with his wife while the main guy tells some strangely wonderful tale about a trip to New Orleans. Then, there's the guy who confesses his love for a female friend, and we're left awkwardly with the sense that something might take hold there, but just as well maybe not. The ending is dramatic and leaves you wondering. Well done.
