What can I possibly say that will conjure up the magic of "Carnal Crimes"? Carnal Crimes follows the life of Elize, her strange perverted husband, and Renny the mysterious artist, played beautifully by Martin Hewitt, who, in my opinion, is more talented than most 'A' list actors. The music, photography and settings of this film have a unique dream-like quality to them, and the story is so profound and intense that it should leave you dazed. Hewitt is dark and dangerous, and his performance is utterly compelling. The atmosphere in this movie is its most powerful feature, and watching it is like having an amazing dream-like experience. You won't know if you've really seen it, or were just dreaming by the end. One of my very favourite films.
