Bad Acting! Weak story...could have been strong, but failed...especially when it came to the end :(

Poor character development, a weak and repetitive dream sequence, and a meandering plot are the least of this movie's problems. Overall, the movie is pretty tepid, and it is also clueless about the moral positions it takes on kidnapping and the relation between life and fantasy. Some exploration of these positions, even with a few expository lines, could have turned this movie around, but instead the movie takes a accidentally banal and indifferent position on these issues. This last was just one of several sources of horror that this movie failed to recognize and exploit.

This movie is fucked up in a bad way. It’s an unironic love story about a man who develops a savior complex with a non-consenting woman that he kidnaps and who is unconscious the vast majority of the time. It could have been a great movie if it cleared its focus and played into how awful their “relationship” is, but as it stands, it’s just a mess of a film with a greatly distorted sense of right and wrong. This movie deserves no technical thought or commentary (while it’s definitely poorly made); it deserves a rating below zero because of how blatantly unaware it is of how it glorifies romantic coercion
