Yeah. This movie is wild. Imagine if you could somehow combine Wages of Fear with Touch of Evil and an original old-school Popeye cartoon. Yeah, Iím not kidding. The film really does have a kind of edginess, which is both unexpected and weirdly compelling. The film is not without many glaring flaws, awkward lines, rushed or forced events, implausibles, and some quite grotesque acting from more than one character. But then, the question, as with Touch of Evil, is whether all of these flaws are not only present, there to be overlooked or pardoned, but in fact, lie at the very heart of the magic itself.
