Blu-ray Review - Knives and Skin


While David Lynch recently organized a return trip to "Twin Peaks," writer/director Jennifer Reeder wants to keep the celebration going with "Knives and Skin."

Reeder likes to keep matters tangled and unreal at times, and her stab at a screen mystery is attempted with dull storytelling skills. She's better with the weird stuff, but just barely, as "Knives and Skin" quickly loses itself to strained idiosyncrasy, often showing its work when it comes to conjuring screen oddity.
