Overserated Egoyan, maybe because is more erotica than exotica, and every character has a strange motifs and pervertions. Koteas is fine deceiving Bruce Greenwood.
View all Exotica reviews
The 'Exotica' is a nightclub on the outskirts of Toronto, where Eric, DJ and MC, watches nightly as his ex-girlfriend Christina performs. Watches jealously, especially as far as the extra attentions regular customer Francis garners are concerned. Thomas, meanwhile and erstwhile, goes through a series of interesting situations involving his pet shop, a gruff taxi-sharing stranger, unexpected tickets to the opera and smuggled eggs of a rare bird. Multiple story lines unfold in a splendid tangle of cutbacks, forward and backward references and recurring themes, all woven around the Exotica, its customers and employees.

30 From 94: My Favorite Films From 1994 (30 movies items)

"Up in the capital city of Canada, there is a strip club aptly called Exotica. While many customers pay their way in just to receive a small thong full of titillation from the dancers, there are a few that go there because they hunger for a different kind of attention. Attention with repercussions that can weave it's way throughout the club, beyond the dancers, customers and employees, and out into the lives outside the walls meant to contain these private personal yearnings.
