This violent film follows the miserable life of a miserable Vietnam vet as it goes from awful, to disgusting, to almost ludicrous (the life and the film). First the vet helps slaughter the inhabitants of a village during the war and then he is captured and tortured for two years.

After that scenario, he winds up in a low-life neighborhood in New York owing drug money, saddled with a chunky, nagging, ugly wife and a little baby who inherited his mother's genes. One gory scene follows another until the climax which is meant to be the shocker that caps it all.

  • 5 stars "An essential film for adventurous moviegoers, a despairing masterwork. What the hell is with the synopsis of the film on this website? Clearly written by a fool who can't appreciate great transgressive work. Don't heed fools. Be adventurous. Check this out."
  • 5 stars "A great film, but be warned that it will depress the hell out of you."
  • 5 stars "A great film. A cry of despair from the gutter. An extremely depressing and traumatic (but essential) cinematic experience."
