This is one of the DVDs selling for a quid all over the place. You can see why. Its an intersting little oddity though. Mickey Rourke is clearly a man with either strange taste in projects or a desperation for cash these days, as this came out at about the same time as he bowled me over in Spun. This is a Belgian effort, where Rourke plays the director of a similarly low-budget film about a serial killer. Contact with the killer is made and trouble ensues.
Most of Rourke's co-'stars' are pretty lame, but Rourke himself shines through as effortlessly cool, shambling around in the less-than-bog-standard sets & 'moody' lighting. The 'film within a film' idea is a good one in theory, but hardly new, and let down by the script. A few vaguely interesting montages of media coverage spice it up slightly, but the main draw for me beyond Rourke's involvement was the fact that it was Belgian. I don't think I've ever seen any other Belgian movies! They don't hold back on including a good percentage of Flemish dialogue and whilst the potential for some beautiful location filming was clearly way beyond the realms of the budget, its just nice to see a little addition to 'world' cinema.
Worth a quid, but I wouldn't seek it out!
