Re: RARA-AVIS: Out of Sight and other new films

Mark Sullivan (
Thu, 23 Jul 1998 09:15:08 -0400 (EDT) Nil by Mouth is out this week on video in the States. It's pretty rough
stuff, but a great film writen and directed (but not starring) Gary
Oldman. One thing that struck me as interesting is that after a film
with no positive male characters, one's more screwed up than the next,
where the women just barely survive by tolerating their men and banding
together, after all of this, when the screen goes blank, it is dedicated
to Oldman's father. Boy does that say a lot.
