 Sorry zab, you'll have to explain AYPI to me... I'm not up on my acronymisations.

Are You... um.... Peanuts Inside ?

 I actually really enjoyed this film...

... Even though I was uncertain about it before hand, thinking it was just going to be a low budget, career's-on-the-shit-heap soft porn cringe-fest, and not one of Spader's finest moments (And if you count Crash - The Cronenberg one based on Ballard's book - that would be saying something)...

But instead, I found that after a few moments rolling my eyes and tutting, I really got into the film, as it's one of those that draws you in through it's quirky, off-the-wall sensibility. It is quite simply about two, um, "odd" people, finding each other... it just happens that their odd-ness is sexual in nature.

...But you gradually find that the sex is incidental to quite a fun story about these two weird people and their battle of wills.

Nothing that will shock too deeply in reality, and it won't make you wish for a lobotomy or other form of memory erasing brain scrape immediately after, like having watched a Lars von Trier film, but I actually found it quite a sweet film... quite romantic and indeed subversively comedic

Ah... isn't that lovely.

((OK, I'll admit that Maggie Gyllenhaaaaaaaal was a big part of the attraction too... she looks like she's made of pipe-cleaners:))
