Quotes

Darko: [Angry at Karl for misspelling his name] My name is Darko. Darko.
[Brings out a pen]
Darko: And maybe if I put this pen right into your asshole, then write my name inside, you will remember?
Darko: [Luc chuckles nervously] Something is funny?
Luc: [Looks at everyone, very nervously] Yeah. What you just said with the pen-in-the-asshole thing. I mean you can't actually write inside someone's asshole.
Karl: It wouldn't actually help me remember.
Luc: How can you read inside your own asshole?
Karl: You wouldn't be able to read it.

Dark Mysterious
16 November 2013 | by SCcontrolSee all my reviews

Dark Mysterious tale well cast well acted just odd enough to be diffident from the mainstream. Perfect locations were sort and used to full effect giving a realist feel to this movie. Breathing life into a film that stands head and shoulders above many a middle of the road attempt of this sort of strange super natural oddball movie. Elements of genesis are running through it with clever one liners from a unhinged gangster played to great effect.To sum up this film reminded me why i watch so many movies in a hope to fine one like this as good as this nowadays seems about one great movie in 25 or so movies watched.
