The Soska sisters previous film, Dead Hooker In A Trunk, was a pretty poor effort, with some atrocious acting and not much flair behind the camera either. Which makes this follow up all the more amazing. A blackly comic tale of a medical student who becomes embroiled in the underground market for body modification , this is as good as anything David Cronenberg has ever come up with. Katharine Isabelle is outstanding as Mary, who goes from sweet and naive…
Unfairly overshadowed by the flashier Braveheart, I think this is the better film. An absolutely first rate cast all act their socks off, Neeson is perfect in the role of Rob Roy MacGregor, and there's a magnificently evil turn from Oscar nominated Tim Roth. The climactic sword fight between Neeson & Roth has to rank as one of the greatest ever filmed.
