Rather than express any emotional truth of its own, Bad Fever merely adopts an attitude that resembles one.

As the camera skitters spastically around its troubled schlub, the film becomes a muddy, minimalist moan of desperation.

Heavy on the awkward silences and joggling, invasive close-ups.

From its opening white-letters-on-red-background credit sequence to its diligent focus on a wayward loner drifting about the outskirts of society and sanity, Bad Fever has the empathetic soul of '70s American filmmaking.

Defa exerts delicate control over his incendiary material and evokes emotional terrors with a sympathetic directness; his raw-toned drama is quietly hectic and brutally poignant.
