"Terrorism brought me out of the house—the war on terror sent me back inside," muses Robyn (Lisa Jarnot), the introspective, severely agoraphobic heroine of this 2004 debut feature by Jennifer Reeves. Suffused with subdued political outrage, it movingly evokes the daily paranoia that plagued post-9/11 New York. Robyn hopes to insulate herself from the dreary political climate by holing up in her Brooklyn apartment and working on a novel, but she can't escape her own neuroses or her neighbors' despondency. Reeves's film is distinguished by its formal rigor—she makes beautiful use of an array of avant-garde techniques, including overexposed footage and an elliptical voice-over—and by its acute sensitivity to the way we all lived in Bush's America.
