Movie Review: Cut Glass (1998): Minnesota Independent; R; 88 Minutes

Oh, I love these little black-and-white movies! Especially this black-comedy take-off on Hitchcock (The Trouble with Harry) and even Whatever Happened to Baby Jane. Cocky plot, about a black lady with huge earrings who arranges a whiplash accident, then inveigles young people into caring for her. Of course, you know what those young people are going to do with her body. One young male character, Marvin, is especially funny, and pathetic, because he just can't control himself, literally.

Nominated for a Minnesota Maybery award for 1998.
