Vicious plot, tight characterization, intense moments, a pleasure to watch.
Vicious storyline. Check.
Crazy ride. Check.
Violent and Exploitative movie. Check.
Take a walk into the seedy underworld of Woody the SOHO pimp. Its a dark but fascinating world with its own unique cast of characters. This film is amazing. So different to any of the drivel that you regularly watch on PIMP movies.
The directors and the writers have actually considered the soul of a character. His life. And that characterization made me pay attention. It made me care about the character. It made me root for him.
The characters are RAW, and brilliantly acted. The story is tightly knit and fast paced. The visuals are gorgeous and disturbing. The cinematography style is intelligently considered. Kind of a movie being filmed as a documentary is a breath of fresh air.
The subject matter is totally raw and obscene. It gives us a glimpse of the seedy SOHO underbelly. That's what makes it so fascinating to watch...
If you're thinking about watching it. WATCH IT. It will shock, amuse and entertain in equal parts.
This is 10/10 stars for me.
