Directed by Hal Hartley • 1994 • United States
Starring Isabelle Huppert, Martin Donovan, Elina Löwensohn
Indie maverick Hal Hartley puts his typically gonzo, deadpan spin on the crime thriller in this wild tale of sex, sin, and spiritual redemption. Isabelle Huppert delivers one of her all-too-rare English-language performances as an ex-nun now making a living writing pornography in New York (she also claims to be a nymphomaniac, though she’s never had sex), who becomes embroiled with a troubled porn star (Elina Löwensohn) and an amnesiac (Martin Donovan) whose criminal past comes back to haunt him.
