Virtuoso camera effects!
13 January 2006 | by (Berkeley, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

Writer-director Les Bernstien comes from a technical background specializing in special camera effects, so here's a neo-noir ultra-low-budget flick that shines mostly due to Bernstien's appreciation and magnificent facility with hard-core German Expressionist sets and mattes and camera angles, and classic film noir lighting and camera tricks. (Parts of the film almost look like classic avant-garde films of the 30s and 40s.) This is all in the service of a story set in some latter-day Dantean hell circle, or Tijuana, Mexico. The b&w film stock reminded me of Jarmusch's Dead Man, and the overall style and tone of this film resides somewhere in the area between Touch of Evil/Kiss Me, Deadly, and Sin City. The story is ultra-lurid to the point of an almost cartoonish otherworld ala Sin City, but it's really Tijuana, and most of the actors aren't actors. And there's also a b&w documentary look to it, esp. in the street scenes. And there's a Bukowski-ish alcohol-sodden, disease-ridden nightmare quality that I found really creepazoid. What a unique film! What a terrific, seamy, virtuoso display of classic expressionist lighting and camera effects! Not for everyone, mind you...and the spoken tracks are dubbed in. Weird, weird, weird wonderful film for a certain small percentage of film noir buffs.
