There usually comes a point during a film festival when festival fatigue kicks in and no matter how good the film is you just can't focus on it. I though this might have happened tonight as I struggled to connect in any way to A Touch Of Sin. On paper and screen everything theoretically should have just worked but it didn't and fortunately I wasn't alone in thinking this.
Any brief moments of caring about a character are diluted by the boredom that surrounds them. The spurts of revenge were occasionally satisfying but the violence served no real purpose (which I think may have been the point) and the whole thing dragged out for what seemed like an eternity.
