Anna Torv plays both Daniel's girlfriend Bridget, and one of his female captors. Director Ana Kokkinos advises this was done purely because Anna Torv was the best available person for both roles, rather than the character of Bridget secretly being one of Daniel's captors. See more »

Book of Revelations starts very well. Daniel, an egomaniac dancer is kidnapped, abused and sexually raped by three masked women.
After that, nothing else really happens. There is some hint of rediscovery but the movie gives nor explanation nor a real ending. Daniel reactions after the abuse are very basic. He quits dancing, has sex with every women around and finally starting a relation with very simple and common woman.
I have seen a good share of art-house movies but this has something missing in it.
The main leads are fine; but some characters does not seems to be completely defined.
