Formally audacious study of the coming-apart of an actress who was probably never any great shakes. Barkin takes a risk!
To be clear, this is a weird, tough little experimental feature on Amazon with Ellen Barkin, not a documentary about 2019, or 2018, or 2017.
Avant-garde enough that, at some level, all bets are off, but it grabs at some really interesting straws and achieves impressive, risk-taking coherence.
