Joram Lürsen gets the maximum performance possible out of three skilled actors who play off each other very well. There are moments of suspense that will have you yelling at the screen and others that will make you gasp as the plot unfolds, smart characters act like amateur morons and victims fight back. Each of our three stars exceeds at creating emotional characters who are each lovable and completely hatable at the same time. Consider Reckless an emotional yo-yo of a picture. Reckless uses sex to rev up your heart and then creates jarring scenes of violence to shock you. Think of this picture as salty and sweet.
The disc does not contain extras and is in Dutch with English subtitles. It’s also a DVD only release. Joram Lürsen is an award winning director who has done television work and other features films, but this is the first time I’ve come across his name. I think it’s a strong effort and hopefully we get to see more from him and more from his cast that performed so well.
Order Reckless from Artsploitation now.
