Set largely in austere interiors in a minimalist New York City, this self-subverting 1998 drama is full of empty spaces and deliberate gaps in the narrative, in which a prostitute with a three-to-four-figure price tag works to pay off a debt to a mobster. She also begins a relationship with a cabdriver, whose curiosity gives us another perspective on her. The characters—their motives at once obvious and obscure—are almost painfully fascinating, and the disorienting shifts in point of view stimulate something far more interesting than judgment or sympathy. Written and directed by Lodge Kerrigan (Clean, Shaven); with Katrin Cartlidge, Vincent D?Onofrio, and Colm Meaney. 95 min.
