Don't miss this one. Lightning fast, deviously clever, smart and stylish, and blazing with the vivid, hot colors of 1970s. The plot will grab you and, for a time, bewilder you. Once the pieces start to fit you realize what masterful hands you've been in for taking you through this fun-house hall of mirrors. This is that rare, wildly entertaining detective flick that most fans of the genre have yet to discover. Nine stars. Given its obscurity, and its subtitles, it's ripe for a first-rate remake. Hugh Jackman? Natalie Portman? Directed by Darren Aronofksy? Wow! What an exciting idea. Darren: Are you reading this. ;-)
