If Lucy Fell is an aimless and formless mess, sluggish in its pacing and self-indulgent in its discursiveness. The movie is so slovenly put together that at least one supporting character, an adolescent girl who apparently knows a lot about Lucy, is never really identified. Is she Lucy's younger sister? One of her patients? A student at the school where Joe is a part-time art teacher? If Schaeffer knows, he isn't saying. Or if he shot a scene that explains who she is, he left it on the cutting room floor -- which is where, come to think of it, he should have left the rest of this fiasco.
