THE ART OF A BULLET – A `What The…?' Thriller
14 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

A military-traumatized man prepares to blow his brains out at his best friend's house, though plans are foiled by a home invasion of two crooks posing as cops. A lengthy, sadistic scene ends in their death, and the two friends quarrel bitterly over reporting the crime or dumping the bodies. Opting for the latter, they get into more trouble. A brutal cop investigating the crime, being a vigilante himself, decides to release the weirdo who killed the crooks. This turns out to be his last mistake.

Interesting little film, notable cinematography. Structure and intent somewhat unclear up to the end, at times even preposterous, though this sits well with the eerie, absurdist feel which runs through-out. Scenes that drag out almost hilariously, sado-masochistic powerplay and sudden emotive/dramatic breakdown also bring to mind The Absurd.
