Life in the Fast Lane Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P91181~Eleanor Gaver~eleanorgaver]] wrote and directed this slapstick comedy-fantasy about graffiti-artist Jeff ([[Performer~P70078~Noah Taylor~noahtaylor]]), who loves artist Mona ([[Performer~P3561~Fairuza Balk~fairuzabalk]]). After Mona produces a painting in which a church sculpture crushes a girl, she sees a church accident identical to her painting, although a stranger ([[Performer~P18549~Patrick Dempsey~patrickdempsey]]) intervenes. Mona takes a fickle fancy to this man and ends her relationship with Jeff, who enlists the help of Mona's boss ([[Performer~P41892~Tea Leoni~téaleoni]]) to mail himself to Mona in a box. When Mona tries to open the box, she impales Jeff with a pair of scissors, and the film then focuses on efforts to get rid of the body. Shown at the 1998 Hamptons Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
