***1/2 out of *****
Interesting little indie horror flick showing at the Centerpoint. It's a very disturbing, heartbreaking tale of a young woman's inability to make a human connection and her eventual descent into complete insanity. Very good performances all around, especially from the lead actress. There're so many great themes and subtle references in this that I really wanted to like it more than I ended up but this is held back by some very bad pacing, an annoying soundtrack, and moments of absolutely horrendous dialogue ("Man, it's still hot in here. Got any ice I can rub on my nipples?"). Worth a look if you're a fan of character studies and horror films.
