Audience Reviews for Dark Side of the Sun
I want to live. Rick has a rare skin disorder that causes him to burn severally if he is hit with any sun light. His condition can be fatal. His family has developed for him a special leather outfit he can wear when he's outside. It covers his entire body. He meets a girl one day and falls for her. Meanwhile, his father is searching frantically for a cure. Can Rick overcome his condition and obtain happiness? "Wherever I am, it's always the same." Bozidar Nikolic director of Balkan Spy, delivers The Dark Side of the Sun. The storyline for this picture is very interesting and unfolds strangely. There are some awkward moments here and there, but the overall plot is unique. I enjoyed this movie. The cast delivers uneven performances and includes Brad Pitt, Gus Boyd, and Cheryl Pollack. "Let's just say in the dark he always rises to the occasion." "That's better than my Frenchmen." I came across this while looking at cult movies on Netflix and decided to add it to the queue. This was far from perfect or a classic, but it has enough unique characteristics to make it a must see, at least once. It is a strange little film. I recommend catching this. "You're a champion." Grade: C+
I think that this film was filmed before Brad Pitts official first movie (Thelma & Louise). He plays a kid that cannot have sunlight touch his skin. He wants to experience life because he is the ultimate sheltered kid next door. Part of life is love and it finds him. The leather facemask with the zipper... creepy but it doesn't ruin the movie. It's really not that great to begin with.
