Ridley's Surreal Film Plus The Hairy Armpits Of Ashley Judd!

Written and directed by little-known, Phillip Ridley (The Reflecting Skin), 1995's "The Passion Of Darkly Noon" is an almost ethereal Grimm's twisted fairy-tale that turns quicky into spiraling jealousy, self-mutilation, pyschosis and death.

A confused young man, Darkly Noon (Brendan Fraser) stumbles into a forest clearing and is picked up off the road and taken to a farmhouse inhabited by a mute carpenter, Clay (Viggo
Mortensen) and his beautiful but very hirsute lover, Callie (a Clorox blonde, hairy armpitted, scantily dressed and very sweaty, Ashley Judd).

We discover that Darkly has fled from a strict religious commune/cult which has been ransacked by local rednecks who have shot and killed his parents.

While Clay is away, Callie will play and so, Callie decides to "take in" Darkly as one of the family. Darkly lives in the loft of the barn, spies on Callie, lusts after Callie and after Darkly does some "spanking the monkey" in the hayloft while watching her, he is just about to make his move when Clay arrives back home. Darkly is immediately enraged with passion, lust, jealousy and most with religious contempt and righteous indignation! He inflicts pain upon himself, has visions in the woods, and finally has a religious experience that leads him to some "very un-Christianlike" behavior to say the least, smiting everyone in his path.

This film is not for everyone. Even fans of Frazer and Mortensen won't approve because they both play roles that are far from their normal typecasting. Although everyone turns in decent performances some viewers might be disappointed. But hey! If you like Ashley Judd, barbed wire and hairy armpits this will be right up your alley!

Happy Watching!
