“Schrader puts his every love and desire into the picture, so it thrills to the pulse of disco music, voyeuristic sex, Robert Bresson, the L.A. light, driving on the freeway in a convertible, and the infinite blossom of corruption in Southern California. It delights in streamlining moderne-ism and the sultry swish of the passing moment. The whole thing is poised on an edge where collapse or public mirth are equal possibilities, yet it survives and brings its fatuous Sirkian plot to a lovely finale. Within the delirium of cliches and pretension, something absolutely true strides forward. This was a new kind of riveting trash.”
- David Thomson, Have You Seen…? [Read More]
