  • msmichel's rating of the film Crush

    After the incredible short 'Kitchen Sink' Maclean made her feature debut with this offbeat study of female identity, deception and revenge. Memory is a funny thing because I remember digging this film on release but watching now found it over baked, over wrought and stylized to the point of near parody. Performances were interesting especially Marcia Gay Harden in an early starring role.
