dreamlike reflection on friendship and living in the margins

The relationship between the two main characters (both are trans guys, not women as the synopsis states) is done well. This is by far the most interesting part of the movie. Their relationship is a little more than a friendship but not quite a romance, unusual in movies. And each guy has a girl, but that seems to be primarily to flesh out, so to speak, the guys' "guyness." Unfortunately, the vehicle for the portrayal of the relationship, i.e. THE PLOT, is hopelessly preposterous and extremely contrived. Take it as symbolism and you'll be okay though. In tone this movie reminded me somewhat of Dream With the Fishes. The mannerisms of Valentine are remarkably like those of Capt. Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. Did Johnny Depp watch this movie?!
