Xaka - X: Night Of Vengeance
Directed by Jon Hewitt
Running time 86 minutes
When Hewitt's film works it provides a realistically depressing vision of lowest common denominator life – one especially harrowing scene of junkies in the hotel room had me recoiling. The film’s intriguing final line also indicates that something much more could have been made of this story. But when a director can’t seem to decide between arthouse or soft porn, X does not mark the spot.
DVD Extras: Audio Commentary with Jon Hewit, writer Belinda McCory and producer Lizetter Atkins; The Making of X; Original Sountrack. Teaser; Theatrical Trailer: US Trailer.
