One or the Other

USA, 1983 (MIFF 1984)

Director: Nicholas Hondrogen

'One or the Other' portrays the troubled psyche of Alexandra Turner, a New York writer imprisoned by her own volatile imagination. The film opens with scenes from Alex's recent novel. Is it just fiction? Are her characters merely literary inventions—or alternative selves?

The arrival of Alex's street-wise sister, Anne, provokes such questions even further.
