An extravagantly elongated trance

Full Review… | May 21, 2010

Characters with unreadable motives are hard to like, and no amount of atmosphere can help

Audience Reviews for The Moon in the Gutter


A visually arresting, delightfully atmospheric, and erotically infused trance, dream, vision, and nightmare.

Super Reviewer


A depressing movie. Not because of the numerous characters who have led tragic lives (the film doesnt care about them at all), but because the film had so much potential, but in the end amounted to nothing more than incredibly but empty eye candy.
