"Art beyond status.”
Gorgeous, mud soaked, rain-on-the-windows giallo. Bloody switchblades. Prostitutes around a bonfire. Wide-eyed grief sex. Exquisite cinematography in the vein of The Fifth Cord. A wonderful opening introducing the cast of characters is the first sign to the viewer to pay close attention; these names and faces will matter. There are layers upon layers of motivation here (lust, class, pride, age) that warrant deeper analysis. The highest praise I can give this film is that I could immediately run it back and enjoy it just as much, if not, more.
