Homicide detective Catherine Palmer investigates a series of serial killings of women who have been tortured to death by S&M, all of whom have had their eyelids cut off. The investigation takes Catherine into a group wealthy upper class women, where she is drawn to the chief suspect, Vickie Kittrie, who has a penchant for S&M and women, as well as to Dr. Broussard, the victims' shady therapist with some dark secrets of his own.

I can understand those who give Mercy a 1 ... in many ways, it's a terrible film. For the most part, it's a teenaged boy's wet dream about beautiful lesbians, wrapped in Lynchian style.
And yet, I couldn't stop watching it. Ellen Barkin remains a highly underrated actress (and an unbelievably sexy woman for her age.) Peta Wilson has hypnotic beauty and holds her own quite well with Barkin. She actually "researched" the role by delving into LA's lesbian S&M scene for a few weeks ... what a trooper.
If you have Memento-esque short-term memory lapse, this is a great film. Forget the plot and float along in its lurid eroticism.
