Masculinity in Crisis, part 364.

April 27, 2007 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Country rapists have their way with Gillian Anderson and poke Danny Dyer's eye out. The duo want payback.

April 27, 2007 | Full Review…

This nasty and nonsensical rape-revenge thriller is a feature-length exercise in wrongness.

Top Critic

Straightheads has the pornographic ingredients of a first-rate cult thriller.

April 27, 2007 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's clear from the start this isn't a revenge drama that's going to wimp out at the end.

Top Critic

The film is a shallow study of the â~intoxicating allure of violence', with a few gratuitous tit shots thrown in for good measure.

Audience Reviews for Straightheads (Closure)

Gillian Anderson & Danny Dyer star in Closure (aka Straightheads). A single successful meets a security alarm professional and they both are attracted to one another. After leaving a party out of town the night unravels to be horrible and then the view...an eye for an eye becomes what is being focused on.

½

While there is some interesting character changes in the flick the rest of the movie is crappy. A little too brutal. Mostly just boring. Not recommended.

Goes for a more literal depiction of revenge as opposed to something deep or meaningful. Anderson and Dyer are both excellent but their characters are shoddy at best. There's a role reversal but Anderson's comes from out of nowhere as she is affected by somebody trying to explain why they raped her. Still she gets her revenge and freaks out when Dyer goes for his. Dyer's character at least has some more complex emotions going on but the film wreaks of desperation as it tries to be some social commentary. The ending may be realistically fitting but it is the last shot which is plain hilarious. "Ooooh it's so deap" no it's just a filmmaker without any real vision of his own.At 80 minutes it is worth a watch, just don't expect to be satisfied. Watch Straw Dogs or Dead Mans Shoes instead.
