Classy....Sexy....What more do you need?
31 January 2002 | by sucklingSee all my reviews

This movie is one seriously classy film. Now it's not classy as in highbrow, but more of an elegant, intelligent, well-cast, well-written, well-acted movie. This is worth the effort it might take to find it. Try watching it in the dark, and see if you don't get a claustrophobic feeling as you are drawn deeper into the movie. I'm not kidding....the edges of the TV set will blend right in with your darkened living room....well... maybe that's only old hippies and their flashbacks....I wouldn't really know about that. And if that is not enough, the star, Cyril O'Reilly, is totally sexy. And if you cannot find it, ask....ask all the time...ask in every video rental store, ask every time you are there. It will come....and we can both rent it....maybe buy it....
