Compared to the "urban" films coming out in the last couple of years, this movie was such a breath of fresh air. From Storyline to Plot to Acting to Directing, this film really brought a much needed boost to the black films I've been seeing (Excluding Ray, etc.). It is great to see how each one of these Trois films has gotten better and better. Andthis one takes it to another level. It was totally unexpected. In fact,I didn't even know they had a third one. It didn't get promoted like the others. Regardless, it's definitely a film to check out. This director and writer are something else. Unlike most sexy / erotic thrillers, this film's story spent more time in the depth of it's characters than reveling only in quick shocks. It reminded me more of an art house film like Red Rock West or The Last Seduction. Like those movies, it doesn't get caught up in the over dramatized twists but has a seductive quality to the plot and this Director really brings it home. I was surprised that an urban film was created in this way. Most aren't. Kudos to the Director. Kudos to the Writer. Kudos to the makers of Trois for making another one. And who's the actress who played the madame? She's really good!
