A slow burner. The acting and direction is absolutely outstanding.
I feel violated, disgusted and uneasy all rolled into one.....what a great film!! At first I thought it was taking itself too seriously but I'm so glad I stuck with it, I will say the AMAZING acting is what stopped it being pretentious. I'm going to be having nightmares about that white face and those fucking legs.
