The single disc open to a language selection [German or English], it then goes to the main menu offering play, set up [basically subtitles and hard of hearing], special features [commentaries, making of, deleted and extended scenes] and scene selection. Picture and sound quality is fine and the acting is top notch -even the support cast. The plot doesn't really have many twists as such, but the clever script, directing and acting is designed to throw you in the wrong direction -and for the most part it works. The pace is constant and the film doesn't flag.
This under-rated film is well worth buying at its current price of less than £5 [even with postage] so if you like detective stories then why not give this one a try, but if you want lots of nudity, violence and gore, then look elsewhere. As a 15 rating it's well deserving of *****.
On first inspection Twisted has everything going for it, strong cast, interesting premise & dark, neo-noir style well implemented by Peter Deming (My Cousin Vinny) that suits the story & foggy/detective credential San Francisco setting very well. However it's a combination of the material & pacing that doesn't give it's stars enough to shine with. Once the story hits it's stride around when the first body is found & suspicion falls upon Shepard, her drinking at home becomes more excessive with infuriating Deja Vu scenes at the heart of the film where we watch her passing out drunk over & over, as fresh bodies of her past lovers appear all with the same MO. In her moments of clarity she never even questions or realizes the connection which rips the immersion apart for such an intelligent cop. But it merely serves it's purpose to keep her under suspicion with a Jekyll & Hyde personality, while all her past lovers & acquaintances around her, are more than willing to act oddly & throw their names into the hat as suspects. Even though, if your a crime fan you will know already who the baddie is.
Ashley Judd (Double Jeopardy) is at home as siren Shepard, doing her best in a role that sees her being quite an unlikable character at times, seeking solace in seedy bars, lashing out at the slightest provocation & circumstances beyond her control in a groundhog day style drunken routine. Samuel L. Jackson (The Negotiator) as Judd's fathers ex-cop partner who brought her up, gives a carefree performance through his limited screen time, never really needing to break a sweat. Meanwhile Andy Garcia (The Untouchables) is his usual dapper, smooth self with a fiery Cuban temper when provoked, having a good rapport with Judd, yet is railroaded with an OTT fondness of Shepard which paints him as yet another in a long line of suspects. Also co-stars a host of well known faces, of note, David Strathairn (Alphas).
In conclusion, Twisted's slow burning neo-noir crime thriller has it's charms, it's just a shame it goes about it in an unexciting & by the book manner. Contains strong language, disturbing & mature themes. Worth a watch.
