    I'm a reasonable fellow, but the characters are so dark and gloomy to the point that I actually found myself applauding a suicide. Also this film confirms what I've always suspected: Women are all unapologetic lesbians. [Score: Lesbians 1 Heterosexuals 0] Abolish Gender Apartheid that'll fix um
