Twitter Capsule: Bill & Ted's Alex Winter directs E.T.'s Henry Thomas in aspiring midnight movie. Shows early promise, but plot's a dead end.

VOR:   One of many '99 films about addled masculinity and split identity, with fascist specters at their edges. Interesting footnote, then. Ephemeral in itself.
