"My all-time favorite performance was Glenn Close in Sunset Boulevard. The passion, the strength, the absolute insanity had me at the tip of my seat. I was scared. I know Ms. Close would never break the fourth wall, but I felt like she was looking right through me. The tingle in my body was intense. Her fierce acting skills made me forget where I was or who I was. That was a life event for me and I hope one day, I can thank her personally!"
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart.
