    the first 15 minutes of this film have incredible Dyke Energy... alas, only the first 15 minutes.

    rewatched this today, and something I haven't really seen noted in other reviews is that class politics aren't absent, just compressed (as befits the setting) — the plot is essentially, "upper class girl enlists upper middle class girl in a plot to kill her arriviste stepfather, upper middle class girl takes the fall"

    also I stand by what I said about the soundtrack, it's an astonishingly creative unforced error
