a quote from a review of "Skin Art" from Ingrid Richter's
site specializing in "guilty pleasures." (I'd
be hard-pressed to call "Skin Art" a guilty pleasure--the
first part of the phrase works, but the second? Okay, for Jake,
it's definitely worth seeing. Otherwise...hooboy.)
Moments include] Jake Weber (Dr. Matt from American Gothic)
as the most sympathetic, likeable pimp I've ever seen in a film
(even the scene when he's bitch-slapping a hooker, sans shirt).
So does this count as a great acting job or a lousy one?"
answer is: Great acting, of course. Anyone can make a pimp evil,
