5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant performances in this powerful, complex, human drama, 7 Aug 2011

This review is from: Kiss Of The Spider Woman DVD Region 0 (Region 2 Compatible / All Region Compatible) (DVD)
While many like Hector Babenco's brilliant, raw 'Pixote' better, I find
his deeply emotional portrait of two lost souls surviving together in a
South American prison cell even more riveting.

The two towering performances - William Hurt's feminine gay
storyteller, and Raul Julia's angry but frail (emotionally and
physically) leftist are by far the best work either has done on film.

The intricacies of their slowly evolving relationship are complex,
powerfully moving, and sometimes disturbing,

And while probably 60% of the film takes place in one room, the film
never feels like a play. It's always cinematic.

A special film that holds up to repeated viewings.

Shocking that there is no official UK release for this award winning
film. The region 1 versions( Blu-Ray and DVD) look great, and
are very worth it if you have access to a region free player.

This no region version is an OK back-up choice if that's your
only way to see the film, but there really should be a proper
UK blu-ray/DVD version.

The film is very good, with really intense acting ability from the stars. The only drawback is the Korean sub titles.
