Director John Hewitt gradually cranks up the tension in a violent thriller that unfolds against the lurid backdrop of big city prostitution.
A stylish but totally realistic view of the subject.
X most certainly won't be for everyone, but I found myself enjoying every second of its slick, bordering on camp, nature. It's one of the most alive and confident genre titles to come out of this country in quite some time.
The seedy pic is long on raunchiness and short on credibility.
The ensuing chase doesn't entirely hang together, with some twists more plausible than others, but the setting's scuzzy, febrile atmosphere adds to the tension and the two leads hold their own.
this film seems to exist only to showcase tough women in various states of undress being tormented by vile men and then getting even.
A night to forget.
As raw and tragic as X tries to be, it stumbles over its delusional awe of the dangerous underworld and its alluring perks ...
Hewitt's pungent early scenes of Oz's underbelly have a certain crystal-meth intensity, but the buzz can't last, and the film starts to wilt.
Raw, convincing Aussie thriller set on the meaner streets of Sydney.
Jon Hewitt has made a short, sharp and edgy thriller that's as effective and engaging as his Red Ball (1999), which was set in the world of corrupt cops
Sex, violence, corruption and disillusionment are the themes of Jon Hewitt's darkly erotic thriller in which two call-girls get more than they bargain for in a tough night on the job.
Quite gritty portrayal of prostitution focusing on two women. One aged 30, who has had enough and is leaving and one a young runaway just starting out.
A bit of violence and nudity, as you would expect, plus the usual betrayals and sleaziness of life on the streets.
The cast are fine, but something about it didn't entirely work, at least in my opinion. Can't quite pinpoint what. Maybe the characters could have been a bit more fleshed out. Particularly for the younger girl.
Jon Hewitt's latest is a sleazy rollercoaster ride through the seamier parts of Sydney. Two hookers, one high class, one street level, find themselves on the run after witnessing the murder of a client.
The location filming is reminiscent of "The Sweet Smell Of Success" in it's effective capturing of a busy city late at night and Hewitt's regular cinematographer Mark Pugh again does great work. I think this guy is right up there with his compatriot Chris Doyle.
Viva Bianca and the stunning Hanna Mangan-Lawrence are both excellent in the lead roles. The movie is too muddled to really work but if you like old school sleazy exploitation it'll kill ninety minutes.
