With its clotted script, art direction that's all splash and no style, and dialogue that's too nakedly calculated to facilitate identification), this tedious and confused movie points several characters in obvious directions.
I've always enjoyed this movie, even after I knew the ending. It's interesting to me, I suppose, to watch the psychological interplay between Catherine and her various puppets. She's a master at manipulation, and I happen to have known someone like her. Maybe that's why this character fascinates me.
