THE HEART IS DECEITFUL AMONG ALL THINGS is a movie based on the autobiographical novel by the pseudonymous cult journalist J.T. LeRoy. I have never read the original so it is hard to know whether it is LeRoy, or screenwriter/lead actress/director Asia Argento's fault that this flick is so dull. Strange to say, but in a movie containing child abuse, drug abuse, wh*res and religious fanatics, all 90 minutes are a complete drag. Don't be suckered in by the roster of high-octane cameos: avoid at all costs.
THE HEART IS DECEITFUL AMONG ALL THINGS premiered at Cannes in 2004. It is now available on Region 2 DVD and will receive a limited cinematic release in the US on the 10th May 2006.
