    Subject: JENNIFER VAN DYCK hooks you !
    Date: Nov 17, 2009
    Sender: SumacPrevious

    Kudos to Zack Winestine -- a man who writes so well for women is a rare and valuable commodity.

    This is not a one-time-watch movie. Multiple viewings allow the viewer to appreciate the more subtle threads woven into the film. It almost begs to be watched over again. Jennifer Van Dyck's performance is what makes this movie so watchable - and so haunting.

    I'm not sure I like Tanzer's "yuppie-midlife-crisis" reference. It makes it sound so Movie-of-the-Week. When Lisa begins to abandon the devices responsible for her excruciatingly controlled environment, it has nothing to do with recapturing her youth or the pursuit of lost dreams. Another reviewer described Lisa's trip as "finding freedom through self destruction." I think that nails it.
