love pierces deep
13 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tony Scott (Man on Fire, True Romance) directs this inaugural episode of the Showtime anthology series based on his own movie of the same name. James Chandler's (Balthazar Getty) trip to a fetish club while in London leads to an infatuation with Musidora, a girl who can survive being penetrated with swords (nope no symbolism there). Terence Stamp serves as the host (before David Bowie took over later in the series)

Granted, far from the most auspicious episode to start the series on. The plot is a bit thin and more then a tad trite. But under the direction of the very accomplished Scott at least it looks good and is reasonably well acted so i'll overlook the flaws of the episode (of which there are a few). On a side-note Tony seemed to have cribbed from himself using a bit of the soundtrack for the episode again on True Romance, namely Hans Zimmer's 'You're so Cool'.

My Grade: C+
