with no powerful protagonist to followalong with Lost Girls And Love Hotels flounders.
The movie’s difficulties with Margaret would possibly be tolerable if it had been a two hander, sometimes cutting out to events from the life span of some other personality, but that is not the situation, as she’s at the middle of each scene. Without any motivation, her narrative since no arc and for that reason fails to satisfy the fundamental needs of a narrative (though do not believe the film does not try to completely pretend it at its last minutes, as it tries very difficult to convince one that non-existent shift transpires). It is all merely a cycle of despair, speedy cut sexual scenes, and much more sadness. Plus it becomes dull quickly.
