Hounds of Love

Hounds of Love ★★

A raw and stomach-churning watch of a film, "Hounds of Love" finds a young abducted and tortured while the drama's audience searches for meaning in the piece. There might be something important lurking in the belly of the work; but it is so drenched in torturous story beats as the torture of its characters plays out that, at some point, the off-putting nature of the entire affair overtakes the search for depth. The film is impactful, and the grainy reality of its look and feel deserve respect. IN the final analysis, however, the ick wins out.
