"I am a bullet" as uttered by James Fox's pistol-wielding Chas, shortly after being on the receiving end of a brutal beating and an alleged gang-rape, is one of those rare, truly extraordinary moments that remind you of how powerful cinema can be. This is a film of many such moments, a violent, sex-filled, psychedelic trip through the mind (or minds) of a gangster on the run that poses questions a... read more
