It's not a film about vigilantism or revenge, but the about the slippery slope of narcissism.
At what point would it be acceptable to start drilling it into a kid's head that stealing someone else's property is wrong? When they're ten? Fifteen? Ever? Or would you wait until their bad behavior landed them in handcuffs?
Bad Seamstress Blues/Fallin' Apart At The Seams. Opening track from the album Long Cold Winter, released May 21st, 1988.
Big Green Country, from the album Mirror Ball, released June 27th, 1995.
Equal parts preachy and exploitative, the movie tries to work both sides of the street and winds up losing on both counts.
Even though I feel, at its core, the picture's a piece of crap, I never get tired of watching it, flaws and all.
If only the film had been as effective as its creepy score.
