Rating = A-

Director/writer/composer Sally Potter tries to do too much and is far from entirely successful, but her efforts are lots of fun to watch. She is clearly in polemic mode, and this has annoyed many of the real critics. But I think her didactic approach just adds to the already non-representational feel of the movie. The dialog is in iambic pentameter, but Potter writes fine, lively, often funny iambic pentameter that actually helps keep the film moving along.
