In contrast to the dull deliberations that dog Colors at every turn… Repentance is a veritable trip through Disneyland. It is even—dare I say this, when Dennis Hopper is concerned?—a hipper, more psychedelic, and funnier movie than Colors. I won’t deny that it gets difficult and/or dull in a few spots, but there are not very many of them. Above all, Repentance offers its audience an intellectual and emotional adventure, and treats it like an equal in this undertaking.
