Storyline

Brothers Vincent (rich) and Clay (poor) meet up for the first time after their father's funeral and remark on how similar they look. But unknown to Clay, who thinks his life is taking a turn for the better, Vince is actually plotting to kill him with a car bomb and pass the corpse off as his own, planning to start a new life elsewhere with his father's inheritance. But Clay survives the blast and has his face, memory and identity restored in hospital... but are they the right ones? Written by Michael Brooke <michael@everyman.demon.co.uk>

race as signifier for class- the marxist dream
30 May 2002 | by olamina1See all my reviews

there are a lot of things going on in this movie, but i think the most fascinating is the way in which you must try and respond to the images before you. "oh yeah, i am supposed to be seeing a white man and woman in bed," you remind yourself. you have to lie to your eyes. what you see you should not perceive. simply amazing. blackness is not an after thought, it is a before and during thought. it is an indelible marker in all realms of consciousness.
