DD (Down and Dirty)
17 August 2016 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

This is gritty low budget at its best (if you are into that kind of thing of course). It's also as unsettling as it gets. Be it the first part or the latter part where it all comes back (more or less - probably more, but that's in the eye of the beholder). And while you feel the pain and anger from our main protagonist, you also feel that he is terribly wrong in doing what he does.

Does that all have to culminate the way it does? Probably not, but how else would the movie be able to shock you back into the middle ages (almost literally with what happens). It's not wrong to feel disgusted by any of this, because enjoying this would be the wrong feeling. Accepting this as artistic form on the other hand is the one thing you may have to worry about ...
