User Reviews

Quietly disturbing and ultimately unique
1 June 2001 | by rwhittakerSee all my reviews

I first saw a trailer for this film around 2 years ago and it took me as long again to locate it. As I settled under my quilt to view it I was mesmorised by the opening soundtrack [fantastic]. From then on in, I was in for a real treat. Even though it is not violent, I found it very disturbing and I still don't know why that is the case. I think maybe the lack of value for human life emanating from each character made me feel vulnerable. Whatever the reason, it is priceless, and the Judge makes you shiver. Anyone who enjoys films totally off the beaten track should enjoy this one.

Watch it!
