Writer/director Almereyda shot his near-feature on a Fisher-Price PXL 2000 camera, a discontinued 'toy' that's been taken up by several American indie film-makers and artists for its unique visual qualities and marginal costs. The ghostly monochrome works best on an intimate scale, giving this East Village, New York, chamber drama a dreamy intensity, as its boho participants float through a late-night haze of romantic pessimism. Nic (Ratner) is married, Bill (Sherman) determinedly single; they live on different floors in the same block, pursuing the mysteries of love, sex and the sway of feminine caprice. Evocative score. Leaves an impression.
