Uma Thurman plays Laura, a young woman who picks older men, drugs them, and robsthem. Her little schemes go awry, however, when she starts being stalked. There is more,involving a relationship with a loser played by Paul (brother of Matt) Dillon, but none of it isinteresting. Deeply, deeply dull.
The sound is, apparently, 2.0 stereo, but it certainly isn’t surround. What it sounds like isextremely muzzy mono. The music is muddy and unex…iting, and the dialogue is often difficult tomake out, especially if there’s any background noise. Very uninvolving.
The picture is, not to put too fine a point on it, wretched. Enormously grainy, with poorblacks, a soft image, and murky, muddy colours, this sub-VHS picture is quite possibly the worstI’ve seen on any DVD that wasn’t a piece of cut-rate Wal-Mart fodder. Just make matters worse,,the aspect ratio is fullscreen.
Lousy movie, lousy sound, even worse picture, and no extras. Treat this one was toxicwaste.
