Twitter Capsule: I admire the ambition and the pain in it. That said, too many formal and story conceits hamper the impact of the feelings.

VOR:   Unusual but timely blend of jagged, self-conscious New Queer style and more character-driven storytelling. Aims high, on a budget. A real favorite for some.
