After some steaming sex, a guy and his girlfriend get into an argument
which ends with her leaving him. He tries to drown his disappointment by
watching a bunch of weird cult horror movies ... until in a daydream, a
girl with a bag on her head appears to him - and after some carresses, he
strangles her, for reasons unknown. But she won't stay dead ...
that's all a movie a film director hasn't even made yet but discusses with
his actor friend (Douglas Reese), who finds the story a bit too misogynist
- which gets the director thinking, and just maybe some of this is based
on his own situation ...
Many of amateur-auteur Douglas Reese's
movies are slice-of-life pieces that often have a certain Eric Rohmer vibe
to them - but here he tries his hands on the darker and weirder side of
life, and if you need a comparison, it's probably much closer to David
Lynch, with its shift of realities, surreal elements and violence (even if
it's just in the "film-within-the-film") ... and despite the
fact that it often takes a long time for certain takes without anything
happening, it's successful in building up suspense and atmosphere - and
the fact that the ending leaves things very open to interpretation (as
does the rest of the film, I don't claim to be wholly accurate in above
synopsis) only contributes to the film's intentionally weird feel.
