You don't see many movies these days where a gonorrhea outbreak plays the central role. You can be thankful for that or not, but the oddball noir The Last Tattoo cuts a reasonably good movie despite a cryptic plot line. This New Zealand production is also set there, during a 1940s stopover by American troops.
