    Watched it for the third time yesterday. Was still completely mesmerized by the story, acting, dream-like presentation of this tense family drama of mid-life crises in the suburbs.

    I hated this movie! I walked out at least three times. It was too real for me, it reminded me too much of growing up. ;(
