  • CJ Roy's rating of the film The Big Heat

    Definitely a case of too many cooks in the kitchen. Flashes of latter To exist in formal ideas such as the use of mirrors early and the deep blue and red lighting alternating in a stand off but his form is definitely still in its infancy. Another sign of it not being a true To film, nobody really eats.
