Shocking, disturbing & ultimately unforgettable film
10 July 2002 | by (los angeles) – See all my reviews

Not since "Blue Velvet" has a movie fascinated & disturbed me at the same time. This film "Hard" combines elements from William Friedkin's "Cruising" and Johnathan Demme's "The Silence of the Lambs". If these memorable films captivated you then, I urge you to seek out this low-budget, yet engrossing flick. I guarantee you will either love it or despise it--just the way the now classic "Blue Velvet" was accepted. By the way, who is the distributor & why hasn't this film been brought to video or DVD?
