Storyline

A pair of corrupt cops spend their illegal cash on an uptown New York City apartment. John Lydon stars as Leo Smith, a disturbed teenager who plays a bizarre game of cat-and-mouse with cop O'Connor ('Harvey Keitel'). He convinces him that he's the notorious cop killer that has been hunting police officers. O'Connor kidnaps him and makes him his permanent guest inside his apartment. Is Smith the corrupt cop killer? Can Harvey get to the bottom of this twisted case before it's too late, or will he get caught up in some twisted game? Written by TheUnbeholden

Fascinating but Kind of Sick
30 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The acting is very good in this study of police corruption. It stars Harvey Keitel as a bad cop who has taken a great deal of money, and, with a partner, purchased a condo. When the relationship gets strained and the other guy wants out, Keitel becomes a bit paranoid, knowing that such a move could expose them to authorities. Meanwhile, there have been a series of cop killings in the city. Keitel finds himself being stalked by a young man, played by Sex Pistol, Johnny Rotten (Lydon). He has something up his sleeve, although he spends much of his time in a bathtub, wearing almost nothing, handcuffed. The former partner becomes a problems and an act takes place where there is no returning to normalcy. The young man continues to be tortured, but, at the same time, seems to be in control of things. He becomes almost wifely in a way. He pushes Keitel's tortured conscience to the very edge. The acting is very good, especially Lydon. The scenes are really brutal. It's a movie that makes you want to wash afterward. Still, it's pretty captivating and well done.
