Watch out for that tiger!
23 July 2002 | by beastieboy120See all my reviews

I had the chance to catch this film at a screening for the "Outfest" in LA. I'm very happy I did because this is a truly incredible film. It tells the story of Una (Katy Selverstone), who helps find talent to make records and become a rock star. She's very talented and when she meets with B, a sexy lesbian k.d. lang type rocker, she immediately sees talent. B. sleeps with Una and they become lovers, however B is a slutty bitch who uses sex to get what she wants. Una has a servant "Dick" who serves her toast every morning and if he's on good behavior, gets make visitors. And the tiger, the pet tiger, who frightens people when first meeting it, but upon firther inspection, it's just a "baby tiger", harmless. This movie was absolutely brilliant. The acting alone was first-rate. B. and Dick do fabulous jobs, but the real standout is the very talented Katy Selverstone (Una). Katy resembles Jodie Foster so much you could swear they were sisters. Her emotional range and depth in this film were the best I've seen this whole year. I really hope this movie gets an audience becasue the direction, script, and acting just blew me away!
