Ripley's movie review

I'm a rather vocal proponent of more male frontal nudity in movies. Not that I'm all that interested in looking at naked men; I just think it's only fair. So when Tygh Runyan ran across the screen naked and Ice chose that exact moment to stand in front of the TV, I complained loudly. I needn't have worried though. He's naked in this movie more often than not.

It's an interesting film. Redgrave was really really annoying but kinda won me over by the end. She also got bonus points for one scene in particular (not saying which one). Runyan did a good job, even though he made me vaguely uncomfortable. Oh, and it's a Canadian movie, too.

It's worth watching but maybe as a discount night rental.
