A story about human nature. Two characters depict their soul and personality on the prelude of a deal. 1989 shows the tragedy of violence, not as an act, but as a never ending spiral of short repeated stories.

In this modern update of the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale (actually more like Gretel and Gretel), 15-year old Crystal is a bulimic delinquent who makes her living by beating and robbing potential "tricks". While awaiting a 25-year jail term, Crystal hooks up with a psychotic young lesbian named Cyclona, doing time for slaughtering her entire family.

Out from under the watchful eye of Freeway producer Oliver Stone, Matthew Bright lets his id run wild and the results are fascinating. Less polished but far darker than the original, this film is hilarious, touching and deeply disturbing all at once. Natasha Lyonne gives her best performance ever and Vincent Gallo is wonderfully insane as the wicked witch. Bright weaves his fetishes into the plot more skillfully and enjoyably than John Waters ever did. I can't wait for his next one, reported to be a re-telling of "Three Little Pigs"!
