Tough to watch sensuousness and post-adolescent sensitivity transformed to sadistic schitzophrenia. Despite its excesses and comic-strip dimensionality, JF is JF and she is riveting, and nails the film to some part of our movie-going collective conscience that needs to see someone, somehow, no matter how, relieve our growing sense of powerlessness to change what is so obviously wrong out there. The plot could have been more roundly developed, but comparison to Mean Streets is inappropriate. Pulp Fiction is its closest kin. 4 stars.
