Tukel seems to have a point of view and a good hand to lead his story - it's contemporary culture of conflict with long scenes of female ass kicking. I know - who doesn't want to punch these stereotypical urban-things on a daily basis? At the end, it's a good black comedy with great performances by Oh and Heche. I'm satisfied. My only critique: sound editing choices - way over the top.
Sandra Oh and Anne Heche are certainly outstanding here and try to elevate an empty conceit to something worthwhile...and fail. Poorly written film that has a good starting point but goes absolutely nowhere. This isn't satire, in fact it's barely comedy.
I agree that the sound editing was a bit ridiculous at times, but overall I found this really entertaining. I like how everything found itself at the end, nothing ever happened for no reason or to no effect. Really solid and unexpected.
There's probably a decent comedy hidden in here somewhere but the end result is so overwrought and so predictable (there is hardly a moment in the film that is not overdone in the most leaden way). If this is the state of indie cinema in the US, there's not much strength in depth.
