Bleak, bitter humor, 27 May 1999
Author: DFC-2 from United States

A graphic depiction of cruelty and emotional detachment that may well depict elements of real life, but is not funny so much as it is unsettling. While there is no question that the director designed a powerful film, I missed the perspective or balance of emotional depth that is also a part of real life. The director's point of view seems as heartless and emotionally stunted as the characters he describes.
