This satirical essay on the pointless destructiveness of violence offers caustic mockery of hideous people.
Anne Heche and Sandra Oh are splendidly unlikeable as middle class New Yorkers, caught in a long term feud. One is rich, the other poor, and a chance encounter at a party leads to a fist fight, lasting trauma and fluctuating fortunes.
There are merry digs at war in the middle east, the dumbing down of news media, the consequences of lacking health insurance, and modern art.
But as the feud stretches down the years, we end up wanting them both to lose.
