Michael H.'s rating of the film The Monkey's Mask

At first this seems to have promise, with a sense of subtlety and bluntness that prevents the film from becoming straight jacketed as a ‘lesbian suspense mystery’. As it continues though, its subtlety suddenly dissipates as the worn plot events start to become more and more common in the narrative. Quite a disappointment after the initial delight.
