liked it

I really wanted this to be a histrionic, overblown, obnoxious moral tale about what happens when good girls go bad. I wanted it to be another San Francisco counterculture cliche. It turned out to be an uncomfortably evocative narrative of who we've all been and/or what we've all experienced. Deeply upsetting but not quite depressing, warm yet totally frightening.
