The film weirdly unfolds firstly like a Japanese horror with a naked chick playing Russian rolulette in a bath but then morphes into a strange drama/film noir character movie. I dug the main charcacter "Johnny", his is one goofy silly dude, he tries to be cool and he is hilariously bad at it, example: he motors around in a tiny bike-cum-hairdryer looking thingy, all very silly in a red helmut with tissue up his nose! What a goof ball! Why not a harley davidsen probably too cool for him but its amusing. The girl actors are real sexy and the acting by all is surprisingly very sharp for a low budget flick like this. Admittedly, I for one was a little confused about the point of the writer guy who lived in a train carraige thingy until the very end when all is revealed -a nice touch.
This flick has cult written all over it, with its weird colorful characters and strange settings, you get: booze, narcotics, dreams, f-bombs, c-bombs, lots of sex (lesbians, hand jobs, fetish -I think?!) not extremely explicit but enough to make you go..gulp! So not for the kids, very adult. I wont mention about Johnny's liver on the nose, yes liver (!) during sex, look, I hate eating that stuff so -one word, yikes!
It gets quite downbeat near the middle but there a little dramatic blood thrown in near the end of the movie, an appendage gets blown straight off which is one of the funniest scenes of the whole movie, this scene was worth the price of admission alone, -absurdly funny.
So this is as indie and offbeat as they come, not for everyones pallete I did see, you will like it if your into dark humor stuff. Oh, by the way the pictures on display were quite beautiful and stunning, shot like a big Hollywood production, another bonus, who says low budget=ugly? This flick has some amazing pictures, see it if you can, quite different.
