yet another mediocre movie
12 April 2003 | by (san francisco) – See all my reviews

I've been waiting for it to be released, and it was disappointing. The film has no ending, it established no clear motives for characters' behavior and the gruesome violence is completely out of sync with the rest of the movie. If the makers intended to go for Godard's existentialism or for Tarantino's explicit content they failed on both accounts. Could be slightly improved visually by re-edit, but otherwise is bland. 10 seconds of good acting don't make the 2-hour film. I was quite bored halfway into the movie. Don't waste your money, it'll be on IFC some day.
