Don't spank that monkey! - The Monkey's Mask review by Kurtz

Spoiler Alert
27/08/2008

This is a glum Aussie thriller featuring, if you’re that way inclined, extensive lesbian love scenes with Susie Porter and Kelly McGillis of “Top Gun” and “Witness” fame.

Porter plays a private investigator searching for the murderer of a truly abysmal young poet named Mickey (seriously, anyone forced to listen to her work would have been a suspect- I started to feel homicidal myself!) and she interviews McGillis as a potential witness before their involvement deepens into an affair. It’s a slow-moving story with a predictable outcome- even the sex is rather a yawn. At least we’re safe from Volume 2 of Mickey’s poems, though!
