On the surface, Young's adaptation of Pomerantz novel feels like a variation of Postman Always Rings Twice, but setting the story in Jersey in a Latino working class milieu and adding Oedipal elements separate his film from the yarn's other versions
"Poignant. Obssevive! Downright Scintilatting".
Caught is a film Noir, that you hope to not get "Caught" watching.
The most literal interpretation of the Oedipus Complex that I've seen so far (I havent yet seen David O' Russell's 'Spanking The Monkey'). On paper this would seem like the worst kind of salacious incest flick, but the actors are excellent here and the director keeps it real and engaging enough. Slightly disturbing. The ending is tepid, though.
very powerful movie ... the chemistry between Nick and Betty is palpable, strong emotions, dangerous ground.
a nice film noir. Arie Verveen is great.
I LOVE this film. Very sensual, and suspenseful, yet realistic in some ways. You don't know where it will all end up as you watch it, and the script is very well written. Maria Conchita Alonso was fantastic in this movie.
Was not expecting much but the movie caught me by surprise. Maria Conchito is brilliant in her role.
The title alone has a double meaning - It's about fish and infidelity. Maria Conchito Alonzo is the centre of this deep absorbing drama, and it is also her most erotic work ever. It is multi-layered, yet certain elements are left ambiguous. The realism instilled by the writing and the acting makes the actions and situations that much more powerful. Edward James Olmos' work is devastatingly good. An excellent piece of work that pushes the eroticism to super hot levels, but pushes equally with the reality and consequences.
Veteran indie director Robert M. Young works a number of interesting wrinkles into the familiar, "Postman Always Rings Twice" married couple-younger man triangle and has drawn fine performances from his leading actors. But the aftermath to the startling climax takes a lot of wind out of its sails, making for a disappointed feeling at fadeout.
