Film: In the Cut - 7/10

The new Film by Jane Campion (The Piano) is good.

Good things

  • Strong female sexuality, real women characters.
  • Beautifully shot in vibrant colours, mostly at night.
  • A very adult approach to personal life and events.
  • Meg Ryan and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
  • Like Nick Cave's "The Kindness of Strangers".

Bad things

  • Like Nick Cave's "The Kindness of Strangers".
  • Blood everywhere, deep red blood.
  • Crime plotline with rather few available suspects.
  • Somewhat jarring hand-held camera work.
  • Ending OK, but not very original.
