I liked the idea of exploring the psychosis of this woman suffering from loss and enduring all of this psychological pain via her delusions due to it. Not to mention that all the fame and glory that she achieved after her lover's death turned out to be all in her head. Reminds me of A Beautiful Mind. But the film fails in exploring or showing any depth to her mental illness. Not to mention that its basically glorified within her delusions. I mean, they had a good opportunity to deeply explore her state of mind but all there is when its said and done is just a bunch of dancing and sex scenes which are shot in a music video format. I mean, the constant dancing and sex scenes get so redundant that I just wanted it to get over somehow. I feel like these scenes are nothing but fillers to fill in the time since they didn't have enough script to fill in the 1 hour 30 minute mark and so they added these scenes to serve as nothing but redundant fillers. Also, the ending could have been better. She wakes up from her delusional dream and thats it. Wish we had something more concrete. Something more real to end this crazy ride of a film. They had a good plot initially but it was ruined by redundant filler dancing and sex scenes, lack of depth regarding her mental illness and that lousy ending. I will say one good thing though. Her imaginary friend Butch, the character and its costume was on point. Probably one of my favorite things about the film.
