Everyone is pre-recorded and gets approx. 1 minute each. This is a little disorienting and disruptive but whoever edited it together did an interesting job. It seems to work to give you a wide and varied aspect of insight into the making of the film and it does have a certain flow. Anette Benning is missing which is too bad because I would have liked her take on all of the nude scenes.
Everyone tries but no one can successfully describe this strange movie that appears to be a black comedy, plays like a crime-thriller and might be more of a Greek tragedy. This movie would not likely get made today. They wouldnt know how to market it.
