Romeo Is Bleeding (1993)



Reviews and Comments

This grisly cop flick looks good and sounds good. Stylish direction creates a thick mood that may appeal to those who like the new wave of horrific neo-noir downers that have an all too natural knack for depicting pain and human suffering. But I don't see its point or appreciate its purpose. It tries to be film noir and mock it at the same time, accomplishing neither. And who wants to be depressed from a movie? Some go to movies to be entertained. Fewer go to movies to get something to think about. This movie accomplishes neither.
