Deed Poll (2004)
"Devotion to the divine and absolute surrender..."
DEED POLL's been a rumour for years, and in 2003 dozens of people finally said that this movie was all a big lie. I pitied that since I always thought that the plot sounded great. (I like sick movies.) Then, two years later, I got word that Mr Schneider got it done, so I ordered a copy through his production company a couple of weeks ago.
Even though you see that it's a low-budget film, DEED POLL has it's magic. Mr Schneider's performance is really strong, the sex scenes are well done: good choreography, great photography, stunning film editing. The best thing about it, still, is the script. The lines are just remarkable! And, after all, this is a movie about sadomasochism and love, about the need to submit and/or dominate and about the will to sacrifice yourself. A pity that it is so short.
Now, it's almost a little secret that this film actually does exist, but DEED POLL will gain more and more fans over the years until it will be a cult classic like all the other "great sick" films: MARNIE, DEATH AND THE MAIDEN, EYES WIDE SHUT, SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, THE PILLOW BOOK, THE ADDICTION, THE WISDOM OF CROCODILES and so on.
