In retrospect, ABOU LEILA does kinda sound like the title of an extremely sinister Pere Ubu song. The film begins w/ an epigraph from William Blake, in part asserting that the world has a tendency to drive good people bananas. The story seems customary, we might expect it to tread a straight line. Instead we get a series of increasingly loco detours. By the end I was nigh prepared to sign my own commitment papers.
