I love this film like it's a woman. The reviewers have once again missed the ferry -- what we have here, folks, is an honest to God(ard) B-movie tone poem, an exercise in sensual, physical, SURFACE beauty that will send any self-respecting Keatsian aesthete straight to Hyperion ( the palace of visionaries, not the Miramax ebook division. ) Thanks to director Michael Radford -- who I wrongly assumed to be eighty or ninety years of age on the basis of his last movie, Il Postino -- B. Monkey is as seductive as the single bar of red neon that illuminates the opening shot. The film will surely gain minor but devoted cult status in the years to come, while its lead actress, Asia Argento, will probably have to purchase a house with very tall gates. ( Because I'm quite tall myself, and a nice climber. )How to describe B. Monkey without resorting to banal adjectives like you'd search on cartons of Haagen-Daz, "luscious" and "velvety"? Well, I see it as sort of a disreputable cousin to Bertolucci's ravishing Besieged; another people, no doubt less pretentious, will compare it to the type of film Steven Soderbergh has been making lately -- a cool, jazz-inflected, proudly inconsequential category flick. But Radford has his own style -- impossibly trendy -- and he's a genius at evoking the loneliness and beauty of large towns everywhere. This is a director's movie, to be sure, but create no mistake: Asia Argento is no slouch when it comes to decorating the frame. She's compact, tough, and fierce-eyed, her unconventional beauty only enhanced by a powerful nose that would look terrific underneath a centurion's helmet. Like Louise Brooks or Anna Karina, she's a vamp for the ages, mesmerizing for no nice reason ( much like the film itself. ) It doesn't harm that she's matched with the brilliant Jared Harris, whose interior performance perfectly complements her exterior one, or that the atavistically lordly Rupert Everett is on hand to do his Wilde thing. Even cute man Jonathan Rhys-Meyers is a bit more animated than usual; he throws launch vehicle doors briskly and with conviction. Yes, the plot is inane. No, it doesn't really matter. B. Monkey, in the end, amounts to no more nor less than the sum of its impressionistic moments. The globe is a glittering tomb where we all languish in oh-so-gorgeous isolation, or something. As Jared Harris tells early in the movie, deejaying at a local hospital: "This next one is for all you romantics out there. Receive well soon."
This was Michael Radford's first movie since "Il Postino" and it's definitely a letdown because Radford is a terrific director. Storyline is about a girl called B. Monkey (Asia Argento) who moonlights as an armed robber and she works with a couple of drug addicts called Bruno (Jonathan Rhys-Myers) and their father figure Paul (Rupert Everett) and a local gangster called Frank (Tim Woodward) is the one who sets up the scores. One night Bea meets Alan (Jared Harris) who is a school teacher and he asks her out on a date. She accepts and later she falls in love with him and wants to leave her sordid past behind. Alan gets other teaching job in the country and Bea goes with him and they begin to live the quiet life but one day Bea calls Paul and he traces the call back and finds out where she lives. Paul is in serious problem with Frank and they follow him to where Bea is. One of the main issues with the storyline is how much Alan puts up with to be with Bea. Her mates are criminals, she was responsible for him losing his job and she displays a cute terrible temper. Maybe it's time to transport on, buddy! But the powerful mission for the movie is Argento's performance. She's a very brave actress and it appears that she would do just about anything on camera. There are few scenes in this movie that require total nudity and Argento seems very comfortable doing this. Argento is Italian and grew up in Europe and European actress's seem to have a various attitude towards nudity in films. I first noticed Radford's direction in the highly underrated "1984" and also "Dancing at the Blue Iguana". Both of these movies along with "Il Postino" are superbly directed but his talent wasn't evident in this film. It's adequately made but besides Argento this was a cute tepid viewing experience. I had heard rumors that it was heavily edited but I'm not sure thats the problem. The entire movie feels flat and labored and really has nothing unique to offer. Argento does create it watchable though.
This film is basically carried by the two leads (particularly Asia Argent, daughter of Dario Argento) and by Rupert Everett in a helping role. The script is average and the plot a tad too obvious at times, but Argento catches fire on camera and does a very nice job. If you like action-thrillers, by all means watch thi one. Recommended.
