Bug (2002)

It isn’t hard to imagine this oddball getting passed over in favor of—well, quite frankly—anything, which is a shame because what it lacks in big-budget production value and marketing it more than makes up for in every other way. With a casting lineup seemingly plucked out of a big-budget movie, this clever Indi somehow borrows the familiar concept of interwoven destinies and refashions it in the most elaborately intricate way. If you’re looking for slaphappy comedy or outrageously dark humor there’s nothing to see here. Likewise, if you want wrought soliloquies, you’ll find this lacking in drama. However, what you will find is a surprisingly clever film jam-packed with fate, coincidence and irony.
