Exposed

  • Film
  • Thrillers
An eccentric thriller meandering an uneasy route between jet-set melodrama - Kinski quits small town college to become top model - and terrorist activities, with Keitel not really at his most convincing as terrorism's Paris kingpin. Toback's earlier Fingers won some critical support, and his script here is not without philosophical moments concerning the ambiguities of the 'look' and the 'self'; but Exposed does not entirely have the courage of its frequently heady high art absurdities, despite moments like the one in which Nureyev (cast as a renowned violinist) literally attempts to play Kinski's body like a violin. For this kind of material the temperature must not be allowed to drop, but it frequently does.
