holy shit!!!! a stunning american work of exploitation which renders just how easily corruptible human beings are, as if it’s an inherent quality of our nature, and how acts of forgiveness, love and hope ring hollow in the face of such corruption, even though they may appear genuine on the surface. kindness here appears solely as a device which manages to expose the self-serving side of…
