I caught this gem of a film at Sundance and enjoyed it tremendously! The less you know about this film going in, the more you'll enjoy it. Just bear in mind, though, that it's not for the queasy and definitely not for the faint of heart due to some very graphic imagery. However, the payoff is well worth the ride, especially if your sense of humor is like mine - a little dark and twisted.
Know that the director has a very specific message, which may not be apparent until the end of the film, so try not to quit half-way through. From the opening titles to the end credits, this movie is brilliant. Solid performances abound and the music sets the tone perfectly. Make sure you watch everything.
