An exotic mood piece, based on the infamous Leopold-Loeb case, that probably didn't win director Tom Kalin many friends in the gay community.

As a dark, moody and stylized (the film is shot in b/w) poem of love and madness Swoon is effective, but as social polemic on contemporary gay issues, it's strained; even so, it's a striking feature debut.

Faux artsy take on the Leopold-Loeb case.

Moody, dispassionate take on the savagery of crime that neither illuminates nor captivates.

| Original Score: 2/5
