I'm not sure why but the clarinet soundtrack triggered associations in my mind with Noseybonk from Vision-On (remember him?) and it creeped me out so much that I couldn't maintain my concentration. Noseybonk scared me sh*tless, you see... Maybe I have some form of ADS... I'll attempt to re-watch when I've regained my equilibrium. Jesus, sorry about this. This response should in no way be seen as a criticism of the film... like I say, I didn't even get beyond the first two minutes.. it's a personal thing. Just ignore it. I'll get back to you...

An accomplished production, sir (if I may be so bold): cut-glass, slick tight, Brain de Palma style. I enjoyed the Kubrick influence in the symmetry of the set designs (esp. 8:30) and, despite feelings of mild nausea induced by the noise of the what was it - oboe? clarinet? (on account of my own personal problem with wind instruments) it was a perfect complement to the moving pictures. Perhaps the applause could be tailored down a bit at the end? Purely in terms of timing/balance I felt it was perhaps a little too long.

I must apologize for causing nausia. I apologize. I am the improviser of the soundtrack, John Perrine. I would like to clear up that the offending instruments were saxophones (one soprano the other sopranino). Sometimes played at once. I just don't want the pain to be blamed on a clarinet or oboe. Cheers.

For the record, John's soundtrack was the very reason for the film, and without it, there is no Dirty Rotten Double Crosser.

Thanks for the good work John.

I hope you would like to do a recorded, studio track for the film also.
