Written and directed by Alan Rudolph, this romantic comedy-fantasy is about a group of lovers whose madnesses and illusions interlock, and it's giddy in a magical, pseudo-sultry way-it seems to be set in a poet's dream of a red-light district. Teddy Pendergrass is on the sound track, and the entire movie has a lilting, loose, choreographic flow. And though you can't always tell the intentional humor from the unintentional, this low-budget picture has a marvellous cast, headed by Lesley Ann Warren, Geneviève Bujold, Rae Dawn Chong, and Keith Carradine. Also with John Larroquette, Ed Ruscha, and Patrick Bauchau as the brutal racketeer. The swoony cinematography is by Jan Kiesser.
