Plot – Spoilers:
A crazy mother and daughter live in a wealthy villa that they share with a bandaged/mummified corpse. The corpse seems to be the remains of Dad. He doesn’t have much to do here, though he’s probably the source of all their craziness.

Singapore Sling begins with a longheld family tradition from Dad’s time – a murdered servant being buried in the garden. Mother and daughter aren’t the best of mates, but they chug along for want of better accomplices to their craziness that includes bizarre roleplays.

Into their world arrives a wasted detective who’s desperately in love with Laura, a woman believed to be dead, and who was once a secretary to the family.

By the end of Singapore Sling, it gets even more unclear who is who. Was the daughter actually Laura damaged into roleplaying a daughter. Was the mother really the mother or just a passing performer in the daughter’s fantasy game.

Michele Valley who plays mother here, also played the mother in Dogooth.

    AWESOME CHOICE ADMINS, LOVED IT!! A most perfect fit for ur site as well?

    So, what’s your favorite movie genre, transgressive expressionist noirploitation maybe? Lol. Let’s see, we have a film thats foreign B&W, noir, and has constant breaking of the 4th wall. That’s a holy trinity for me right there! How refreshing, can’t believe I’ve never heard of this film before, it made my night honestly.

    Beautifully shot, acted, framed, scored… this one literally checked damn near all the boxes, including the kink ones, and was a bit erotic at that. I found some parts to be quite humorous as well, and imo the daughter stole the show in terms of acting. They took taboo trashy subject matter and made it higher art somewhat, so in that aspect only, it kinda reminded me of Salo. When I saw this was Greek I figured it’d b a piece of trash akin to the Greek film Island of Death. Glad I was wrong.

    I’m definitely gonna have to add this one to my collection. 10/10, the standing ovation!! Thanks again effedup;)

      Are you studying media ,film making yourself Elliott ..Just neing nosey because I keep running into your comments ,I go for more ‘ surreal’ & film noir myself too.So glad I discovered this site ,been trapped at home on lockdown for 9 effing months alone ..that in itself for most people would be classified in the genre of ‘ horror’ ..So happy am I too have access to great films ,great books and my paints otherwise I would have gone quite mad !;)

      Well.. to be fair here I’m sure many many people requested this film… Should come as no surprise that Singapore Sling would show up here. Of course it would.

      What was the first one you recommended, Petros?

      • January 9, 2021 at 11:19 pm

        A coincidence i saw your question. The other one was the great IMHO “Strella”. I could go in depths concerning effed up films from all over the world, but i stay Greek.
        Thx for asking

    WOW, insane, I loved it, so unusual

    Wow.. what can I say… Totally enjoyed that…. Suspense.. sexyness… Drama.. pathos… Vomit… Lavishly shot and scored…. A hit in every sense .. didn’t even dip in the middle. Slightly bizarre and every bit a s good as any film on this truly wonderful site.

    If asked, I’ll deny I ever watched this film…. twice! : )

    What a train wreck that keeps your interest from beginning to end. Thought it was a great piece of film making. Not for everyone but wow…simply wow!
