This has no unthinkable oddness. This is not nakedly emotional and has no psychological reckoning. Gordon has problematic self regard. His brother John is untrusted. Their dad is not of blessed and glorious memory. He also had no submission to modernity. John is motley, rude and ill-mannered.
This slides into torpor quickly and do not attach great importance to this. There is no reasonable or rational basis for what happens or what people do. Gordon denigrates his father and John. There is bad acting and the game’s hostess (Crampton) overdoes the eye makeup. John is a wastrel. Gordon is actively unpleasant and this has a feral and squalid air. There is eccentric acting and this was unappealing and imperfect.
The morally suspect Gordon stares and there is erratic swings of emotion. This is not a nostalgic mediation. Gordon is an unresponsive fun sponge. There is no uncanny ambiguity. This had hype and promise but did not deliver. This was not harrowing and has no rage and horror. This was contrived and not potent or disquieting. Weirdness does not motivate concern. This was all false concern and unpleasant shifts. There is gore and nothing makes sense. The script is bad and there is general illogic. This was an arch, low budget horrible incoherent mess that makes no sense and has purple lighting.

“The old castration by boat propeller scene.”
“That would be nice.”
“What if he is?”
“Those filthy strumpets.”
“To which I am totally indifferent.”
