Storyline

In San Juan, Puerto Rico, after two gristly murders, the murderer has used the victims' blood to paint the walls by the bodies. An agnostic Jesuit priest, whose brother was the first victim, visits the crime scene: look for a talented abstract-expressionist painter who's going through a spiritual crisis and is angry at God, the priest says. The police ask Father Michael to continue to assist them, and he visits Bohemian haunts an artist might frequent. Father Michael's own history unfolds, too: he's a painter, he has an ex-girlfriend in San Juan, and he's attracted to Mary, a life-drawing model. Soon all fingers point to an aging local artist, Lewis Garou. Case closed? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A pleasant surprise!!
19 March 2000 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I acted on impulse when i rented this movie. The box said: "starring Dennis Hopper" with big letters, and that was good enough for me.

This movie is a surreal thriller set in Puerto Rico. The main charater, Michael, is a catholic priest with a natural gift for painting. When his brother, who is a gay prostitute, is murdered in a beastially way, he returns home to face his deamons and help his uncle, who is a police investigator, to solve the crime.

This movie delivers overall great preformances from all the actors, and a cool story with many metaphors. The photo is great, colorfull and suggestive.

To conclude: a great movie if you like "weird" movies like Seven, Appocalypse Now and Wild at Heart.
