Mail Order Wife Review


Very Good
Not too long ago, I attended the wedding of my best friend from high school. Iit was my first. These days, one shouldn't be surprised by this, but I sure as hell am.

As much as I think marriage before you can rent a car from Hertz isn't the wisest action, I felt like he wanted to make her happy and that she wanted to make him happy. One can't say the same for the two grooms and their wife in Huck Botko and Andrew Gurland's Mail Order Wife.

Adrian (Adrian Martinez) has agreed to let a three-man crew to follow him as he orders, weds, and begins to live with a Chinese Mail order bride, in exchange for a little help with the cost. After three months of sending letters, Lichi (Eugenia Yuan) comes to America and weds Adrian. We start seeing subtle sadistic behavior in Adrian as he makes her watch his snake devour a mouse and then attempts to get her tubes tied... without telling her. Things get darker and flat-out creepy after that, and she begins to see the documentary's director Andrew (Andrew Gurland). They date and eventually get married too, and things start off well, but it's all downhill from there, and boy, do I mean it.
