Levi Harrison’s review:
Just watched Abel Ferrara's DANGEROUS GAME. This is a movie about a director trying to make a movie and wrestling with his own demons. The actors in the fictional movie pretty much play themselves, and even the real-life actors playing the actors seem to be playing caricatures of themselves. Nicholas St. John wrote the screenplay for this movie, and the Ferrara/St. John collaboration always tends to result in good movies. This movie had me checking my watch a lot, but I liked it despite it's lack of story because it's very atmospheric. This movie uses some of the meta-fictional flourishes that David Lynch' INLAND EMPIRE and Monte Hellman's Road to Nowhere used.
