A visually inspired first effort from a film school-literate director.
15 April 2005 | by gaby01575See all my reviews

The director did an "Alan Smithee" on this one for some reason, not wishing to put his real name on the credits. I saw it on its initial release and was impressed by the cinematography, owed in no small part to the director's having studied film at NYU. The influence of Italian neorealism(of which the director is a confessed admirer)is readily apparent and the film may even be taken as an homage, albeit something set in a 3rd world Asian country and dealing with seamy characters.

Said characters are participants in private sex shows where paying audiences can watch "actors" in various hardcore sex acts. The subject of an innocent lured by the city into depravity is an industry favorite and is given the usual treatment here with only a little variation on the theme to make it a little different. The young Jaclyn Jose, in one of her early roles, positively glows in the role of the exploited innocent. I haven't seen this director's subsequent films but this initial effort certainly merits kudos. "Where have you gone, Sixto Kayko--a nation turns its lonely eyes to you, hoo hoo hoo...!"
