This is one of those films where the mystery is much better than the solution.

While watching this film, the star winces and cringes like someone who has never even seen Nicolas Cage strut through "Face/Off" or "Leaving Las Vegas" or "Wild at Heart" with worldly swagger.

Roger Ebert

A dark, dank journey into the underworld of snuff films, undertaken by a private investigator who is appalled and changed by what he finds. It deals with the materials of violent exploitation films, but in a non-pornographic way; it would rather horrify than thrill.
