In the intimacy of his studio, as Jack paints Ruby, she inspires him to break from the tortured past that has been smothering his artistic capabilities. Ruby, taken seriously by a man for the first time in her life, sees a future beyond the darkness she has endured while trapped in her marriage to Kazak.

“The power-packed poetic precision of the dialogue plays a crucial role in terms of vivid and effective characterisation. In terms of tone, colour, production and atmosphere, the film does an exemplary job of maintaining the tension which is palpable throughout the film. There is a lot of sex, intrigue, violence and conspiracies, as Simpson tips his hat to the archetypes and tropes borrowed from the cult neo-noir classics.” Prarthana Mitra, Cult Critic
