Sally Potter's 'Yes' [US]:
The first thing to say about Sally Potter's "Yes" is that it is written in verse - rhymed iambic pentameter, to be precise. This curious feature may not, however, be the first thing you notice about the movie, given Ms. Potter's knack for enjambment and her cast's impressive ability to make highly artificial language sound like natural speech. The rhythms of their dialogue are at once odd and familiar, and the meter gives the picture a brisk momentum, making it feel like the expression of single, sustained impulse. "Yes" is not just a movie, in other words, it's a poem.

A bad poem.
