Another Film That Needs A DVD Release
This was a real sleeper, a good film that most people don't know about. Just check to see how many reviews are here: only a couple. It's also not available on DVD. That is a real shame, because this movie was beautifully shot. I saw it on a poor-quality VHS and still looked nice, so I can imagine how good this would be with a clear transfer and great colors.
Nick Corri and Madeline Stowe play small-time thieves and lovers. Desperate for money, they do things they should not do in a few categories. Stowe, by the way, shows a lot of skin in this film, something she has not done in subsequent movies. She had just become a "name" actor the year before in the hit film, "Stakeout." Corri's real name (at least according to IMDb here) is Jsu Garcia, but for awhile he used the name Corri.
There is not much violence in this drug-crime movie and very little profanity. It's rated R for the nudity.
This is interesting film and certainly something that's different. If if ever comes out on DVD, I'm going to buy it.
