Twisty, turny, kinky and very, very dark
30 November 2001 | by (New Mexico) – See all my reviews

I liked this, but it's VERY dark and more than a little confusing. Carlton Elizabeth is beautiful in a way reminiscent of a young Sonia Braga - every bit as sultry, plus voluptuous in an over ripe, Angelina Jolie fashion. Lots of very kinky sex and nasty language (not one for the kiddies), and a great Sam Elliot performance.

The plot is not as deeply convoluted as say Red Rock West, but takes a number of psychological twists and turns. If you want something black but not horrific and twisted but not impossible to follow, served with moody visuals and flavored with lots of not quite gratuitious S&M and B&D, it's a good one for a late night with like minded freaks. But if you watch it with your parents, don't say I didn't warn you.
