Goofs

Snake tells Michelle that "In England around the 16th Century, there was a man who tried to blow up the parliament buildings for his god, because that's what he believed in. Unfortunately, they caught him and they burnt him at the stake". In fact, the Gunpowder Plot took place in 1605 and Guy Fawkes was hung, drawn and quartered. See more »

Intense, sometimes klunky, but memorable.
16 August 1999 | by gromit-14See all my reviews

It's been a few years since I have seen this film, but the images still stick with me. An intense psychological drama, the film explores the harrowing weekend when two heroin addicts attempt to kick their habit. The film is claustrophobic - the couple have boarded themselves into their basement apartment. The mood is stifling and constrained, allowing the audience to feel the intensity and desperation the characters experience.

There are occasional pretentious scenes where the male lead reads French philosophy aloud. One can't help laughing, but I don't think we're supposed to. If you can get beyond this silliness, you won't be disappointed. I found "H" much more intense and grim than "High Art".
