"Sixteen Tongues" is not a film that is easily digestible, in fact, it makes it obvious during the movie's first established shot. The plot is simple and yet the message forces the viewer to "read between the lines" of thismicro-budget, cyber-sexual thriller. What the director (Scooter McCrae,"Shatter Dead") does is create startling and quite thought provokingdialog to engage the viewer in what the film's budget lacks visually.

It is a dark and disturbing look at a future many of us want to avoid. The truth resides literally between the lines. For one to really understand and experience "Sixteen Tongues" as a great cinematic experience, one must look beyond the images and at what the screenwriter (McCrae) is trying to say. What many of today's audiences tend to forget is that movies are not always supposed to be handed over to you by "a lazy Hollywood" with happy endings and saccharine story lines. A good film like "Tongues', forces you to think and at times it does provoke uncomfortable reactions.

"Sixteen Tongues" is about, a universe propelled by a sexuality so demanding humanity is forced to literally pay for it. "Tongues" bold expression is a UPC symbol planted underneath our skin. Do not watch it as another "fly-by-night-run-of-the-mill" S.O.V. flick; experience it and think about its memorandum. I enjoyed the film enormously and would highly recommend McCrae's (as well as his first, "Shatter Dead) second effort, it is unique, and frankly, it is a film that pushes the boundaries of modern realism while keeping a sharp distance from mainstream flair.
