    Truly a cult-like flic. A dark-comedy without the comedy ... unless your's is twisted. This flic is quite personal while at the same time very detached. A walk up apartment feels more like a dungeon. Violence is muted but always lurking. Francis is a simple man with profound vision. Richie V of NYC
