An intriguing but ultimately frustrating thriller about Elvis, the son of a pastor and a Mexican prostitute.
A young man suffering from a highly-nuanced psychosis, Elvis wreaks revenge on the father that spurns him, murdering his half-brother and sleeping with his half-sister. His inner emotions and intentions are never fully transparent.
Part of what makes the movie interesting is the attention Marsh and Addica have given to characters (such as the pastor's son Paul) and to scenes which serve a largely symbolic function. William Hurt is again impressive as Pastor David Sandow.
