Deep Crimson back to product details

Murder--and Love--Most Foul

Don't approach the decade-old DEEP CRIMSON--Arturo Ripstein's Mexican film based loosely on the same story as Leonard Kastle's "The Honeymoon Killers"--unless you've a strong stomach for exceedingly unpleasant murders and an utterly depressing tale.

This is not to say "Deep Crimson" is a bad film. It is well made, beautifully filmed with a gorgeous color palette and some stunning compositions (photographically and musically). The performances are fine, and to its credit, the film does justice of sorts to its terrible story. As horrible as that story is, the movie never seems exploitative. Yet this is one difficult slough through some of the deeper "depths" of humanity. I finished it, but not without asking myself several times along the way, "Why am I watching this?"
