Very Powerful
25 February 2002 | by (texas) – See all my reviews

A movie about rape with a shocking twist ,This time a straight man gets sodomized by the criminals he's after ,Richard Crenna gives a powerful and tender performance as a macho cop who thinks he's all that and ends up being violated sexually by two sadistic criminals in an alley.

This is a tale that in reality I'm sure has happened to men but you never hear about it ,Usually its women who are raped and its public knowledge but for a man to get raped is so much more a violation to me.

To see a man like Richard Crenna go through the humiliation of rape was powerful and gripping. His emotional journey and the fact that he has been violated in such a terrible way is shocking.After he is raped ,he becomes more aware of his emotions and his sensitivities as a man and his machoness a front to cover his tender side . All in all a good movie that shows you a dark side of people we rarely hear about whether your gay or straight ,you should watch this movie . Strong performances by all.
