I really can't understand why this film has such a poor rating. I rented it totally randomly years ago and was absolutely entranced. It's about good people who do bad things, and bad people who do good things, and about the moral values of society. It has a wonderful visual style, portrays an amazingly consistent world.
The whole film has an air of sadness pervading it that sticks with me five years on.
Difficult viewing, but wonderful.
If you see this for rent or cheap purchase anywhere, grab it and see one of the most individual and haunting films ever.
