“Toback is trying to be Orson Welles, and Reed, Dostoevski, Conrad, and Kafka. The film is a howl of ambition, it has the wild self-dramatization that one associates with the young Tennessee Williams, or with Mailer when he gets high on excess. Insanity, violence bouts of sex, Jacobean revenge killings – nothing is too much for Toback in his exhilarated state.
