Bent Review


Good
Croupier's Clive Owen is fantastic in this otherwise lackluster tale of Jews, gays, and Jewish gays imprisoned during the Nazi Holocaust. Based on Martin Sherman's play, the action is drawn-out with not a small amount of pretension, and the film's conclusion is never short of obvious. Other movies have tread similar ground before, just without the pink triangles. Altogether, it's a lackluster flick.

When a string of abductions, (including Red Riding Hood and Gretel) in the village of Marbaden catch the attention of a French General (Jonathan Pryce, playing Ian Holm's Napoleon from Time Bandits) who only seems interested in a good meal, he sends Italian torturer Cavaldi (Peter Stormare) to grab the German con men out of bed to send them to investigate the problem.
