Angel Baby

This won a slew of major Australian Film Institute awards (their Oscar equivalents) in 1995—best picture, director, actor, actress, original screenplay, cinematography, and editing, no less. Maybe that's what's wrong with it, because despite many appealing elements—including sizable performances by John Lynch and Jacqueline McKenzie and a fair amount of charm and grit—writer-director Michael Rymer aims so doggedly to please in this love story about two psychotics that he all but hands you a bouquet of flowers on your way out of the theater. This is probably at least as good as the similarly themed David and Lisa, and it certainly gives you an emotional workout. But I can't say the memory of it lingers.
