When the conjoined twin brothers Francis and Blake Falls fall for a sad tomato of a call girl (Michele Hicks, looking like Mrs. Marsellus Wallace and behaving like Mary Magdalene) in Twin Falls Idaho, a delicate mess of pathos follows. This first feature was created by its (nonconjoined) twin leading men with an obsessive thematic binarism — references to $2 bills, ”A Tale of Two Cities” — that is too, too cloying, but the raw force of their identity parable doubles your pleasure.
