Reg Harkema is a Vancouver director now working in Toronto. His first movie, A Girl is a Girl, was a lo-fi hit and his second was the flawed but intriguing Monkey Warfare. He has now turned his attention to a retelling of the Manson famiy trial, offset by the story of a young chemist selected to be on the jury. Perry is trying to do everything right but he can't stop thinking about cute murderous Leslie, even when she cuts a cross into her forehead and shaves her head. Will he be able to vote for the death penalty?
Harkema believes he has made a profound artistic statement about the fine line between good and evil, but he hasn’t. He might also think this is a funny film, which it is not. It is quite violent but pretty and it is entetaining but pointless. Harkema could have pushed this much further and I wish he'd given us a film with a bit more substance.
There is no picture here because they are all too disturbing.
