This movie ambitiously portrays an artist wielding the power of truth as a sculpting tool. It’s clearly an adaptation of a stage play, and has both gems and stinkers in the dialogue. It’s a thought-provoking film, but takes a pretty dismal view of people in general. Even the artist, the only one who sees the truth, is only able to use it to bring out the worst in people. In the end, the artist sculpts the world into the thing she’s most critical of.
