J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film Border

This is strange, disturbing & brave in its own way. There is a sixth sense of smell for fear. A woman which is not a woman. A man which is not a man. Child pornography & abuse. Grub eating & baby feeding. Human's or no humans with tails. Man overboard surviving with handcuffs. The start until 1st half seems promising, but it went 'off the rails' and 'lost a handle' on the right balance between realism & fantasy: 2,5.
