More thoughts – Massive Spoilers
If it all were just a dream, that would be a sensible way to avoid all the nitty-gritties of reality. How does Helena look when she wakes up and her hair hasn’t been done perfectly. Is she still attractive to Nick when he’s helping her take a shit – assuming he’s not into shit.

There’s a nice detail of Helena’s head propped up by a pillow. But in Nick’s world, the visual perfection of a limbless Helena surrounded by beautiful flowers would most likely be offset by such seemingly minor, nodding realities.

    This movie was pretty bad. Hopefully, she improved as a filmmaker.

          Surveillance! I haven’t seen it yet but agree that Chained was good.

        She was pretty young when she wrote the movie, so it’s no surprise that it didn’t turn out so well.
