The Cinematheque Reviews: Amer

A sexually charged, carnally coloured homage to Dario Argento?  Who could ask for anything more?  Seriously though, the film paints the proverbial pretty picture as a neo-giallo mindfuck of a movie.  All-but-wordless, and filmed with a probing, voyeuristic camera, Amer, is a fascinating, albeit one-note, picture, that seems to work in spite of, or perhaps because of it pretentious, egotistical art-for-art's-sake mentality.  This is meant as a relatively good thing btw, for I quite enjoyed this movie.  There!  Now go read my review dammit.
