RAG DOLL - Not Another Rip Off
26 February 2020 | by asaprodsSee all my reviews

Love the harsh, disquieting style of this film. Not only is it a festival favorite, but it deals with a lot of very powerful subjects all in a nice, tidy but rough around the edges piece.

While it is a 'Fight Film,' there is a lot more going on than one would think. I don't want to reveal any of the great plot points but I will say this, 'Watch this movie!' Nora, played by Shannon Murray is a master study in dealing with the harsh realities of life. How she does it is told in a brilliant and loving fashion by Director Bailey Kobe.

If you're in the mood for a great film, take a look...
