Villain ★★★½

pretty hard core gritty action film. can really tell the difference from '60's and '70's. mixed treatment of gay characters, few in background, but all characters a low-lifes. burton's violent psychopath does seem to have real affection for bisexual pimp boyfriend, at least before beating him. and pimp does not try to hide involvement with man, tcm's ben said there was a man on man kiss scene but was cut. would really love to see that.
