Update: "Repo: The Genetic Opera"

It still hasn't arrived in the UK, but obviously the press machine for this film is working overtime. Yet another review appeared today, this time by William David Lee of DVDTown.com. I don't know whether this means the film is being released onto DVD before it makes a world tour, and if so, it doesn't bode well for the quality.

"Repo!" holds the record for the most songs in one film at 64. Not all the numbers could be considered full-fledged songs. A few are essentially bits of conversation sung. None of the songs are really all that memorable other than the ones previously mentioned. A lot of the music is just disharmonious noise on top of noise.

Again, not a favorable review. Although perhaps the worst comment was meant as a compliment, "The production design looks remarkably good for a low-budget film."
