Swing Out Karamazov Sisters
6 June 2008 | by (Oakland, California) – See all my reviews

"No One...BUT NO ONE... Will Be Admitted After The Start of Each Performance." Viewers should take Hitchcock's "Psycho" warning to heart and see this 22 minute shocker from the beginning.

Adapted by director Eddie Muller from his short story of the same name, "The Grand Inquisitor," with its twists and turns, fits squarely in the tradition of master storytellers Poe and de Maupassant.

Jonathan Marlowe's cinematography looks like a million "technicolor-on-a-budget" bucks. From the jet black of Leah Dashe's bobbed hair, the vivid pink, white, lavender and yellow of her outfit to the blood red stripe that runs along Marsha Hunt's blouse, the colors tell a story of their own.

Our tale begins with a young woman knocking on the door of an elderly homeowner. She's the ultimate mix and match Vintage Girl: vintage hair, vintage clothes and vintage name, Lulu. The older woman, Hazel, invites her in. Empty liquor bottles are stacked everywhere. Like in a nightmare, there's incessant background noise from a TV or radio.

Hazel searches for the name of the actress who popularized Lulu's hairstyle. "That's a beautiful dress" says Hazel, the 40's style evoking other memories. Is this a long, lost granddaughter or a ghost from her past?
