Exotica (1995)

The mysterious, monotonous world of a Toronto strip club is explored in
this mysterious, monotonous movie from Canadian director Atom Egoyan
(FAMILY VIEWING, THE ADJUSTER).  The layers of the story are peeled away
every-so-slowly, as the film discreetly expands upon the relationships
between a patron, a dancer, and a deejay.  The mystery-- and the promise
of a payoff-- is good for about an hour, after which point the evidence
begins to mount that there's really nothing waiting at the center.

This onion's hollow.

Grade: C+
