If you want my advice... If you're looking for criminals, go down to the Town Hall and arrest the Council. Lock them up and throw the key in the river. Or better still, keep the key and throw the *Council* in the river.

It turned up on TV (True Movies) and, having nothing better to do, I slumped in front of it, expecting something trite. But it's an excellent film (about the usual things: power, money, sex, human frailty, etc.) and very watchable. Can't imagine why it wasn't released in the cinema, when so many vastly inferior films are. Possibly because of the awful title? Or the slightly embarrassing final shrug in the direction of 'the patriarchy'? No - it must have been something much more complicated. Anyway, other earnest seekers after wisdom about the human condition can apparently download it for free. Whoopee! Heartily recommend they do.
