"Sara Driver's first feature — a luminous, oddball comic fantasy about ancient Chinese curses and Xerox machines, set in Manhattan's Chinatown and its immediate environs — may well be the most visually ravishing American independent film of its year (1986).
Set in an irrational, poetic universe that bears a certain relationship to Jacques Rivette's DUELLE, this dreamy intrigue breaks a cardinal rule of fantasy by striking off in a number of directions: an executive barks in the street, a young Frenchwoman (Ann Magnuson) loses her hair, and machines in a copy shop start to purr and wheeze on their own initiative.
The moods that are established are delicate, and not everyone will be able to go with them, but Driver, the producer of STRANGER THAN PARADISE, sustains them with beauty and eccentric charm. Suzanne Fletcher, who also starred in Driver's previous 50-minute YOU ARE NOT I, makes a compelling (if unconventional) heroine, and Lorenzo Mans's screwball dialogue develops some engaging hallucinatory riffs."
