"...the point here is not to moralize, and the stakes aren’t conveyed in any traditional sense. The dark urban landscape takes on an otherworldly quality. There’s some kind of throbbing spiritual energy that cleanses wrongdoings as soon as they are committed. Director (Anderson Matthew) weaves it together with elegance and vibrancy, focusing on confused/lost/seedy characters, but treating them with an uncommon humanity. It’s a beautiful and tender work with a lively cast and transcendent final sequence." -
