Plumbs the totalitarian mind

Jul 20, 2003 | Full Review…

Strong performances by Rickman and Stowe, yet the film (about torture) fails to engage on a visceral level

Rickman and Stowe add a lot to this fascinating little mind-bender.

A brilliant movie, you'll be astounded that there were only two actors in the entire film. Rickman's best performance ever! I loved this movie. The story is a bit far fetched, but it's sorta surreal too. I highly recommend this movie.

Some interesting mind games between Rickman and Stowe with some actual interrogation/torture techniques make this intriguing.

I enjoyed every minute of this, even though Rickman is a very bad man. (Maybe that is why I liked this film). It is definitely not for the normal people out there. Very twisted.

Sadistic!Rickman porn brought to you by Amnesty International! Really brilliant, but by no means a fun or a light film to watch because of some of the scenes (not because of what it shown, but what it left unshown) and the underlying message.
