Big Papaya is estranged from her mother, who disapproves of her performances, whilst Little Papaya is an orphan who suffers from terminal cancer.

(de) wrote: It was disjointed and tried to be bit too clever. The booklet at the special screening described it as a cryptic crossword but it was more like a jigsaw puzzle in which the pieces didn't quite fit together. When a picture started to emerge of what exactly all the vignettes were about the overall story was less interesting. A case where the sum total was less than its parts.

(de) wrote: An exercise in paranoia. This is a documentary about a man named David who decides to go "missing" for a month to see how easily he could be found. He leaves his 7 month pregnant wife at home alone with their 2 year old daughter to do this. What a star. This whole movie felt kind of boring and actually a bit pointless. A bit hard to feel the suspense when the two guys hunting him have been paid - by him - to do so. It's not like there is going to be a shoot out at the end. Amusingly enough, in the end he is "caught" by something obvious - not facebook, mobile phone, CCTV, credit card or any of the usual things people get paranoid over. Yet he still feels "data raped" at the end. Yes, I agree, people need to have some common sense with the things they reveal, but I really get exasperated with people in general who seem to think all are out to get them and their "personal information" and this is just an indulgent 80 minutes of that non stop. I know it happens, but all this is going to do is make people who are so inclined even more paranoid and tiresome.

(mx) wrote: I loved this movie!!!! A girlie Flick but funny. It bought back memories of my trip to the UK last year. Specially Scotland anmd the Isle of Skye.
(br) wrote: Sufficiently entertaining with non-stop suspense. Definitely of the Hitchcockian way and a story that's very unpredictable given the somewhat generic setup.
(ca) wrote: This is a very unique movie. Schizopolis is probably a good name for it. It's plenty confusing. Random, akward, and yet dimly funny, in ways that are reminiscent of This Is My Milwaukee and a mellower Tim and Eric Show: Great Job, though it really is its own thing. It goes on a bit long for what it is. Whether it can really all be made sense of, I don't know. Some of the metaphors make sense, but there is a whole lot of "What!?" going on.
(ca) wrote: Really odd horror/comedy that's really entertaining with just as odd of a cast. Stella Stevens shows her boobies in it, too, and she's like 40 something.
(nl) wrote: What a disappointment this movie was. It had real creepy scenes, music, style, camera work, acting, that it would have been one of the best slashers if it wasn't for the incoherent directing, editing, and plot. It felt like a montage of horror scenes that hardly made sense. nevertheless, effective.
(es) wrote: Interesting, with strong performances.
