I am looking forward to this. FYI, the review I read stated that the trailer had some sort of spoiler potential. I don't know if it gives away any info but the reviewer definately reccomends going into it with a "clean slate".

When I was watching the trailer I did think it was giving away an awful lot. I hope it doesn't ruin much. But either way the movie looks like it might be decent.

dude.... finally! I thought this would never get released.


I saw it last year at the San Francisco IFF, and it is so far in my top 10 of 2002. It is very, very sickening, and a lot of people in the audience had to shield their eyes for some bits. I loved it because of its uniqueness, its humor (at appropriate times), and the way it just made me CRINGE. You also can't help feeling sorry for the girl too.

I'm happy this is getting a wide release.







(don't look at spoilers unless you're REALLY curious about some of the stuff):
Spoiler:
an interesting story about a social reject trying to find a perfect friend for herself- made up of pieces of body parts; there's some self-mutilation, a bit of semi-cannibalism, and that very very crazy scene with the blind children...........)

Here's a list of the theatres this is playing in. Of course half of the dates have already passed. I'm going to try to check it out down in DC this Friday. The DVD is scheduled to be released on July 11th I believe.

I thought that this was a pretty good little indie flick. It got a little sloppy at the end and seemed to be trying to hard and lot some of its appeal IMO. I really liked the actress that played May and her friend was a riot.

I just saw May and really enjoyed it. (in a good way though)

Very solid performances, well-developed plot and logical arc for the characters. It will be difficult to watch at times for the squeamish.

This has cult classic written all over it.
