Critic Reviews for Reflections of Evil
Reflections of Evil is a work of stunted genius...[the] effort of a freaked-out filmmaker overdosing on '70s TV, horror anthologies, and a...lack of psychotropic drugs.
Audience Reviews for Reflections of Evil
Amusing and funny, but then strange and straight up disturbing... all at the same time.
There's no traditional narrative to this film, other than showing this probably insane obese man wandering the streets, and also cutting back periodically to his sister in the 70s, who turns out isn't in the 70s at all (but you'll have to see why).
This is definitely mostly an experimental type film, and really shouldn't be watch by everyone. It was definitely compitently made and well done and all that, but I'm not sure I even liked it. Mostly it seems to be a schizophrenic (sp?) portrait of LA trash, and seems like alot of these people in it are actually the way they the appear in this film, in real life.
I might have hated it, but at the same time, I really loved it.
Fuck I don't even know.
For the record, if you read the synopsis on here, the version I saw was only about 90mins, not 138. There's no narration, especially not from Tony Curtis, and what they describe as the plot isn't nessesarily clear when you watch the film. If you do. And I don't know if you should. But if you do, you probably won't forget, so that's saying something.
