Frankly, “Always Shine” could be a bit less clear what it’s really about. Takal casually borrows from weirdo Altman (especially “3 Women” and “Images”), plus De Palma, with scrolling titles out of a Ken Russell movie and jarring mini-flash forwards, maybe lifted from “Easy Rider.” But she rarely gets a chance to go whole hog genre… That doesn’t mean what it says doesn’t need to said, or that the way it says it doesn’t work the nerves as well as the mind.

It’s an immersive nightmare of merging, over-identification, and projection. Its strangeness (and I yearned for more strangeness) is part of the fascination. The true horror here is emotional. These women feel pressure to be one and have an equal desire to shatter the illusion of one-ness forever.

A deft, assured movie with a sly self-reflexive undercurrent containing commentary on sexism and self-idealization that’s provocative, and sometimes disturbing. As it chronicles Anna’s through line from neurosis to psychosis, it implies that, in times such as these, maybe the girl can’t help it.
