Storyline

Monty is a bodybuilder. His gym is the very heart of his existence. He is aggressively male, outrageously narcissistic and a bigot. Sharing this strange world is Monty's cerebral and emotionally wounded younger brother, Bertin. One stormy day, the brothers' bizarre but settled lives are suddenly disrupted by the unexpected arrival of Lilith, a Catholic nun collecting contributions for an unusual cause. Lilith's arrival is the catalyst required to generate a momentous change in Bertin's relationship with his brother, a change that results in the astonishing and gruesome downfall of the vainglorious Monty.

Trivia

The film took over 14 years to complete due to the deaths of the original producer and the lead actor during the production process. The film started shooting in 1994 and was finally completed in 2008. It was Trevor Goddard's first starring role when the film began. In a twist of fate, it was also his last acting role as he died weeks after finishing his final scene in the film in 2003. Due to financial restraints, the remainder of the production and post-production process took a further 5 years to complete. See more »

Goofs

More perverse than Tarantino
6 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I always thought Quentin Tarantino was the best at pressing my squick button (I still cannot watch "Pulp Fiction" without feeling a bit queasy), but this movie takes the cake.

It was interesting, but only in the sort of way an auto accident you are passing by on the road is. (I spent a fair amount of time on fast forward.) It is an intense movie; there are a couple of WTF moments: Bertin, the younger brother, purchases a man in a birdcage (sort of a man--he does not seem to mind or notice that he is caged), and we find out late in the movie that the alleged brothers are really father and son. One review I saw said that Warhol would have loved this, and, I don't know, I guess so.

I was saddened to learn Trevor Goddard (Monty, the older brother) is no longer with us. He and the others do a nice job.

Recommended, with reservations. There's a fair share of homophobia, homoeroticism, incest and S&M, and some wild sets. Does that make for a good movie?--well, perhaps.
