An outrageously mind-trippy "outsider" film experience.
22 January 2003 | by sugar-33See all my reviews

Poor reviews almost kept me away from Besotted. Glad my curiosity got the better of me. Film is full of off-beat intelligence, sardonic wit, and unexpected twists and turns. Seems like critcs missed point of director Hardman playing smug fool in film. Brave move that seems to have been a sore point with critics, and is one of those things that kinda, hasta be understood to buy into the movie. Buy, I did. And was richly rewarded with a truly delightful film-going experience. Best for viewer to have fairly sophisticated knowledge of literary and cultural allusions to appreciate film, I'd say. Lots of very cool kookiness going on here. This film has to develop a following or it's going to be lost. And that would really bad.
