When I enter one of these worlds, I expect risk. Not by itself of course, but paired with clever insight, unusual metaphor or sliding perspective. But above all, risk. Their risk is my risk. Quite literally, I enter these film relationships promiscuously without protection, bare, expecting permanent change.
That’s why I have higher expectations for something like this. But alas, this is not a risky project. In fact, it wraps itself in 80’s satire and mundane fimmaking. It is too safe. It is as if its own condom kills it.
