Doesn't Make The Cut
- In the Cut review by CP Customer
Shot moodily. Lit dimly. Acted badly.
It's almost a case of someone having a vague idea of what makes a thriller work but not having ever seen one before.
Oddly unengaging, considering the two leads, and frankly nonsensical in execution.
At no point did I beleive in her character or her attraction to the cop, particularily as her suspicions mount. The conclusion is utterly ridiculous, though I'm sure has symbolic meaning. Meta-themed thrillers are fine just so long as you care about the hero and can find humanity in their plight beyond the hidden meanings of the plot.

Phew what a scorcher
- In the Cut review by JD
It has to be stated at the outset that this is a highly sexual film. But do not think that it is cheap, it is really gripping. The characters are immensely complex and very interesting. The plot (it is outwardly a detective film) is good. The drama spot on. Scoring such a violent and pornographic film with a 5 star I did for the dramatic impact and intensity of emotion not for any smutty motive. Definitely an 18 rated. Not for winding down to.
