A timid and mute seamstress goes insane after being attacked and raped twice in one day, in which she takes to the streets of New York City after dark and randomly shoots men with a .45 caliber pistol.
10/10 just for being the most insane movie I've ever seen. Visions of Suffering, Death Powder, Reflections of Evil, and a few other movies have held that title over the years, but no way will this be replaced.
Stop-motion, supersaturated colors, completely just.. insane, ridiculous.. fast cuts... about a BILLION cuts, by the way. Completely chopped-up narrative. Okay, there's not much of a story. This is all style. It doesn't matter. Just so BIZARRE. Dialogue that doesn't match voices. Almost the whole film takes place in black rooms with high-contrast props and insane costumes.
Sorta like a cross of the films of Adam Cooley and the early films of Tsukamoto. Worth a watch. Don't mistake my rating: This isn't a GREAT movie, but it is just... wow... INSANE.
