Saw this cleverly constructed bit of film grit once on the big screen and had to see it again soon after. For sheer gut affect, mad plot twists and insane character portrayals, this ranks up there (though perhaps not SO high) with Pulp Fiction except without the hype.
Madman Gary Oldman is at his best here as a policeman and husband who just doesn't know how to behave, and Lena Olin is in one of her favorite, and most provocative, roles (a cop-killing assassin).
Be forewarned, there is violence enough and a strong aura of sexuality (though no crude sex scenes). And the witty dialogue is now and again punctuated with a wee bit of "colour". If Tarantino, Peckinpah, and Guy Richie are not your cup of tea, don't even try to take a sip of this stuff. It will not be to your tastes!
It's a film that is rough tough and half in the buff that you don't have to be ashamed of watching with your brain functioning.
