Five Days in March

Director Dan Safer takes on Toshiki Okada’s slippery storytelling, in which characters phase-shift between identities and tenses while trying to decide where to begin their tale; we eventually understand that, during the run-up to the Iraq War, two strangers have gone tumbling into a five-day, anonymous orgy. Okada seems sweeter, funnier and less ritualistic than he did in last month's Enjoy. Again the writer bombards us with the stop-and-go rhythms of actual speech, but cast members such as Wil Petre and Kourtney Rutherford interpret his false starts as adorable flakiness, rather than slacker bummertude.—Helen Shaw
