Young misfit May (Angela Bettis) endured a difficult childhood because of her lazy eye. And though contact lenses have helped May adjust as a young adult, her deep-seated awkwardness remains a problem. Adam (Jeremy Sisto), a young man obsessed with fixing wrecked cars, takes a shine to May's oddball ways. But May's strangeness ultimately drives him away, leaving her open to the advances of her co-worker Polly (Anna Faris). When Polly dumps her too, May's emotional instability turns violent.

Written and directed by Lucky McKee.

It's a legit classic, imo. When McKee and Bettis are working together, you know you're going to get some fucked-up but resolutely feminist horror.

It's pretty good. May is a dangerous wreck, but the steps that get her there are clear and well laid-out. It leaves you... not exactly sympathetic... but at least understanding by the end.

And that end! Reality of hallucination?
