Whenever one gets to the point in life when one cannot identify him or herself, that person might be losing it. Simply put, he or she has lost the handle on life and is going down the life’s deep curve. I must present you with three main characters in this movie and you pick whose lost grip on life. Hillary, a romantic juggernaut or a gigolo, shuttles between two affluent women. One who’ll give him anything he wants even as he runs in and out of her life at will. Then another who hits him with her car and take him home to her bed but also ends in the arm of her sister.
Hillary, a common hustler, is rescued from a bunch of market hoodlums by (name) but when she takes another look at him, good as he looks, he ends in her bed. She feeds him, romance with him, cloth him, romance with him some more. He even beats a one time lover of her’s, and there he becomes her protector. He’s eventually thrown out, well, temporarily out of her apartment because, he doesn’t know himself. As he walks from (name) he’s struck by another woman’s car. Not so serious injury, but ended up in her bed too, and also goes ahead and lays her sister too. And here too, he’s thrown out on to the street, but still acts like an idiot who doesn’t know himself.
Hillary is a man who can kiss the girls and make them cry, and he knows it so he flaunts with what he gets. Don’t ask me what he gets but he has it because soon, the two women are vying for his attention again, because they don’t know themselves. But oh, our gigolo comes to the end of his rope when he backhands (name) to death and while he panics over her, (name) arrives on the scene, and with a little tussle over her gun pointed at him, he’s shot dead.
Thematic use of music bears rhetorical elements to film, the same way proverbs and poetic verses are used in our compositions, but by the same token, when music or such devices aren’t used measuredly they disrupt that essence. The theme song, “Who am I?” do not give the story much chance to explain itself and sometimes even gets in the way, by being so lavishly loud and overused.
