    Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn

    ★★★★½

    Radical in both form and content, Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn opens with literal porn - or rather, a graphic sex tape, which will set the form for everything that follows. The real question is however far more scathing: What is indecent - this tape, or society itself?

    Now this is a Hondo closer to his roots in O Soleil, and what an incredible, mad and beautiful film!

    To talk about West Indies, we need to talk about the minimalist setting, and extraordinary scope. Almost every scene is set, fittingly enough, one a stage made to look like a large ship - used both as the…
