Brautigan: Man, of course men gives better blow jobs! Listen, I know what it feels like to get my dick sucked, right? And I know what I like when I get my dick sucked. So when I'm sucking a dick, I know that what I'm doing is what I like and that is the best of it that can be done.

Dark, sexy and smart.
12 November 1998 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

"Let the Devil Wear Black" is dark, sexy and smart modern interpretation of "Hamlet". Distinctively noirish, this clever film maintains a fast and steady pace that explores the deep rooted psyches of the main characters. Although the film surely would be characterized as a thriller, the writing and directing are strong enough to justify "Devil" as a character piece as well. Stacy Title's wry sense of humor is apparent from beginning to end. Furthermore, Ms. Title's shooting style, complemented by Jim Whittaker's cinematography, is more imaginative and animated as compared to her previous film "The Last Supper". This film is funny, tragic and engaging. It is truly a gem and not to be missed.
