Need Some Soap?
7 August 2018 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

Positive: Well, positive if at least 50% of screen time silently panning through a large, mostly abandoned, industrial town or watching our characters walking it's roads, is interesting to you. Another 25% of time is viewing a few people living in the town, again mostly not talking, or doing much. Negative: What we do see, briefly, of people - a pretend buddhist monk; a crooked thief posing as a soap salesman; a couple of cops; and a few others with brief roles. The main take away is corruption as the salesmen steals from people, the monk falsely begs for donations, the cops try to take advantage of their position, and a couple of other victims. Conclusion, theme could be a bit of humor on the effects of urban blight - not sure.
