Raw And Violent But A Worthwhile Film.
There's been a lot of controversy surrounding this film and its having received an NC17 rating. Frankly, I see hundreds of movies in theaters annually all around the world. It's what I do. I guarantee you the rating system is skewed when this film gets branded X and those like Adam Sandler's recent kiddie porn, "That's My Boy," Quinten Tarantino's ultra violent "Machete," and Oliver Stone's quintesential gore fest, "Natural Born Killers" all passed muster with an R. Yes, it's violent, yes there's frontal nudity and overt sexuality, yes there's questionably inappropriate language. Still, were it not for the wider distribution this film was denied due to this rating, I'd think it was a hype tool to put butts in the seats. As for the film itself, it's a must see. The script is solid, well produced and filmed, and the cast turn in excellent performances. It's for adults though. Other than that, it's well worth its ticket price. See it. You won't be disappointed.
