Plummer's performance is nothing short of electrifying. Her portrayal as a psychopath is so credible and dynamic that I felt a wariness and fear of her character as if she had been in my living room. And yet, there is a vulnerability and tenderness woven into the relationship between Eunice and Miriam (played equally convincingly by Saskia Reeves) that evokes strong yet confused and opposing emotions. Incredible!
Butterfly Kiss is a pretty bizarre road movie starring a freaked out girl. Its a quite harsh and gloomy film. Besides sick in her head she is also on many areas very irritating, mysterious and misunderstood. That of course is something people always fascinates. The end of the film is both liberating and oppressive. Not a bad movie though.
Well this puts a whole new light on one of my most favourite mini drama's 'The Trip'. Winterbottom just replaced the service stations (and murders by a phsyco bondage fetish lesbian nut job) with 5 star restuarants and two comics. Job done.
Mortifyingly intense. Plummer is like a punk Aileen Wuornos crossed with Alan Parker urban warrior. Poses the question whether society still has the right to judge someone who has been horribly scarred by life.
