Peter Belly's rating of the film The Zone

What I found most powerful was the matching of geometry, for example, between the first sex scenes and the three layers of the narrative. What's compelling about love triangle plots is that they are unstable/unbalanced, this film knows this implicitly and relays it on all levels of its construction. But was I having a good time watching it? Could it have been a bit more playful? I don't know.
