Review by DAVID MACDOWELL BLUEJune 20, 2017
What I liked
The fearlessness of it all. Really, this dealt with a lot of things right from the start we often don’t see in dramatic art—such as a forthright discussion of periods, oral sex, porn, crime, how different people look at the world in really hugely different ways, and how lines between good or evil are anything but straight. Some of these might seem like the stuff we see all the time, but no. Mostly writers pretend or go for easy outs. The murderer has insights into the dark side of life, reveling in it. No, actually something very different might be going on. The working class slob is more down-to-earth than the rich bitch, more wise and real. In some ways, maybe. But not all, not by a long shot. A lower class hothead has to to be a misogynist. Except he’s not, not even a little bit.
What I didn't like
The budget? I suppose it could be expanded. Maybe. Although my own imagination cannot really see a way to do that and get much more.
My overall impression
A delicious brew of humanity—humor, surprise, tragedy, love and hate, foolishness and wisdom, insight and some madness. All performed with vast skill by the cast.
