In this stunning, chilling saga, Ernest Rackman (Wyle) fills his days of quiet desperation between clerking at an adult bookstore and abusing drugs in his run-down bachelor apartment. Shy and socially awkward Ernest struggles to connect with the daughter of the bookstore owner, Meredith (Bateman). His advances cost him his job, his days become empty and his nights turn into orgies of drugs, self-abuse and violence. 

Ernest is pulled from the brink by Christiane (McComb) a 14 year old prostitute. It is a tender pairing where Ernest finds in the young girl someone to love and someone who needs him. He sets out to rescue her from the sex trades, unearthing a subculture of pedophiles including Polo (Dooley), Christiane's former "John." Ernest extracts his vengeance in a vigilante style shoot-out with Polo and his associates in this super-violent, critically acclaimed, psychological thriller.

The resemblance to Travis Bickle from "Taxi Driver" is a welcome reminder that the cinema can still seek out the painful, destructive and lost characters that were far more frequently and successfully envisioned in 1970s films. Its not really a pastiche or mockery as some critics on its release argued. Rather its a re-examination of the place of someone like Travis Bickle in another time. Its also based on a true story. This gut-wrenching film has a fearsome score reminiscent of "The Exorcist" (even the credits evoke that film). It succeeds best in those moments where Ernest and 14 year old Christiane seek to establish a truthful relationship. Its not an easy film and the performance of Michale Wyle is jarring on a first viewing but in time the truth of his performance shines. Morally the film is complex and the violence is excessive.
