Not so much a lurid movie, but a morality play
27 January 2019 | by tabunoSee all my reviews

Pierce Brosnan gets to star off character once again as he continues to extend to portfolio of movies including a nasty assassin in Survivor (2015) and a more amenable one in Tailor of Panama (2001), or The Ghost Writer (2010) where he plays a questionable politician. In this movie, Urge is the new drug and a group of elite young mostly high- class friends get an invitation to try it, but only once. What results is not so much a lurid movie, but a morality play. By focusing not on the sensually sordid (which a majority of movie might) but on the action of human beings this movie attempts to offer up another look at humanity in a way that seems more fascinatingly almost surrealistically horrid than strictly dramatic thriller. But movie eventually takes the easy way out by avoiding an extended explanation and experience of how the climax of the movie is arrived out. What is nice about the movie is the way it insinuates what is going on without ever explicitly revealing it and how not always the characters one might suspect will end up with there denouement. A more artistic and meaningful experience to watch after this one would be Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut (1999).
