Thrillers

 

Time Out says

Made by a British-based commercials and TV director, working from a script by Buñuel's daughter-in-law, this emerges as a reworking of John Fowles' The Collector. Only the kinks have been changed to excite the prurient. Loner tattooist (played by Hollywood's favourite nutter, Dern) stalks, abducts, and tattoos his beautiful model (Adams) before he fucks her. Despite vague attempts to give tattoos global significance, the result is a peepshow of psychopathology, devoid of insight or even context. See the mad artist kidnap the hysterical girl! See him make her masturbate while he watches through a hole in the door! Roll over Sigmund Freud and tell Bill Reich the bad news.
