There's something so gloriously pathetic about our protagonist, Julie. She's so blithely unaware of her privilege, including her loser boyfriend and his misgivings. She reminds of an NYU film school graduate - floating away in her dreams of being a film director without the self-advocacy and commitment to work towards those dreams.
I know that sounds bitter, but it's one of the reasons this is a rewarding film for me to watch.
Ps - With all the Hitchcock references, I imagine this film a version of a Hitchcock film where the film is from the side-chick actress' point of view.
So dry and cold and joyless.
My soul hadn't vomited like this in so long. Do not recommend. Possibly the worst movie I've seen all year.
