Critics reviews

Allison Anders, in her standalone debut as a director and writer, took a sledgehammer to Reaganite sensibilities and showed women who were living on the edge – and in doing so placed herself in the vanguard of the indie wave of the 90s… Throughout her film career, Anders has brought her tough personal experiences to the screen and challenged audiences to see women in new ways – a legacy directors continue to build on today.

Quietly destabilizing the genre’s implicit racism and sexism, as well as keeping the violence strictly verbal and emotional, Anders refocuses the stresses of identity, isolation, and camaraderie on a family of women… Anders and company keep things light and earnest, emphasizing the discoveries over the failures, in this undersung gem of the Southwestern indie boom.
