A wonderfully funny and twisted silent film with a great ending.
17 May 1999 | by (Louisville, KY, USA) – See all my reviews

Any time this movie can be found it must be seen...drop everything you're doing and watch this well-acted/directed silent movie. Cusack is perfect for the part. The film has no hickups in direction, and flows to a perfect ending. I highly recommend it, though it's very very hard to find.
