3.0 out of 5 stars killer's kiss too far, 23 April 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Killer's Kiss [DVD] (DVD)
There is much to admire in this movie. The way it presents the boxing sequence probably influenced the stunning subjective techniques used in classic sports films like 'This Sporting Life' (rugby) and 'Raging Bull' (boxing). Comparisons with 'Mean Streets' in its documentary portrayal of the city landscape and its exploration of romance within the ugly urban sprawl are also appropriate.
So, 'Killer's Kiss' is an influential movie, but does it stand alone as a decent film? I must admit, if I hadn't known it was a 'Kubrick movie', I would probably have written it off as nothing special. But there's the paradox, I DID know it was by Kubrick, and he is one of my favourite directors. He is treated with similar reverence by most film critics. In many ways, it is a 'Citizen Kane'-like situation: I want to say I hate this movie, but risk being outcast by those professional critics who claim to know what they are talking about.
That said, I enjoyed the film. It was well paced and refreshingly short, so there wasn't time to get too irritated with it. I recommend this movie to Kubrick fans, to film noir fans, and to fans of low budget 'cult' style cinema.
