Another Girl, Another Planet

Michael Almereyda, the writer-director of Twister, was sufficiently inspired by Sadie Benning's highly personal black-and-white videos—all made with a $45 toy camera—that he used the same kind of camera to shoot this highly personal hour-long feature (1992), a fictional work inspired by his own (mainly love) life in New York's East Village, with his downstairs neighbor (Nic Ratner) playing himself. Like Twister, this is charming, quirky, poetic, and original—maybe even more so—and Almereyda's use of the toy camera creates a fuzzy, intimate kind of space that actually seems to resemble the inside of someone's head. With Barry Sherman, Mary Ward, Isabel Gilles, and Elina Lowensohn (Simple Men).
