Review

This disruptive, provocative flick is structured like a crime-drama a suicidal single resident, a home intrusion, a violent sexual assault and off we go but writer/star Jacqueline Wright and the director named Adrian Cruz never let anything settle, never let you feel that you've got it all figured out. They somehow manage to elevate their seemingly simple story and arguably even simpler production values into a multifaceted dissection of morality, power struggles and various implications of sexual deviance. Jacqueline Wright obviously knows which buttons to push, and she pushes them to save her life (or at least her career), but from some blatant dabblings into exploitation territory quite a few interesting thoughts emerge. The interplay between Wright and Brad Carter, who plays the youngest of the intruders, is at times stirring.
