Highly recommended. Entertaining and well-crafted.
A very innovative treatment in the Film Noir genre. Be warned that there are scenes of explicit sex, graphic violence, homosexuality and homophobia. Something to offend just about everyone. Of course, so does the wildly successful Borat! That said, this film is very well executed at all levels. The screenplay is very tight, with no holes in the logic. The direction is very even and consistent. The suspense builds in a well controlled manner with numerous twists that can be very difficult to manage effectively. The story has humor as well as intrigue and is quite captivating. The plot is somewhat reminiscent of Roshomon (Kurosawa), or it's American remake The Outrage. A story told from various points of view. But in this case, the emphasis is not on the differences in the points of view, but the actual events as they happen in real-time. Acting is quite good, sometimes excellent. Score is very innovative and appropriate to the events on the screen. All in all, the production values of this film are absolutely top-notch and equal to, or even superior to major studio offerings. And, the film begs the viewer to see it a second time in order to appreciate what is being told but not understood the first time. Highly recommended.
