A future cult classic given its artful take on transformation, both literal and figurative.

Schaefer shrewdly lets the theatricality of the actors' work fall away as the the world around them looks more like a stage, cleverly conjuring the game of make believe that everyone plays in their daily lives.

Beautiful and wonderfully poetic, the film acts like an interlude of sorts, as the viewer finds themselves basking in the imagery of two women at a crossroads in their lives.

As it is, it's one of those movies trying so hard for profundity that it's tough not to root for it--and tougher still to watch it fail.
