stylish at times, showing a bit of potential, but ultimately falls flat. the movie obviously relies on shock value, but the more shocking scenes (especially the "Serbian family" climax) are completely ruined by cheesy special effects and epileptic camera cuts. i commend the director, but at the same time, i feel like it wasn't as effective as he thought it would be. it looks a lot better on paper.
i like how the distributors went through the trouble of making an NC-17 cut in order to play it in a handful of theaters.
also, it has possibly the cheesiest and funniest dildo prop ever. that thing might as well have been purple and had an anal probe attached to it.
